VIDEO: A car on fire and a woman’s quick instincts, that’s what unfolded Wednesday near the corner of First Ave. and Hitchcock St. in the city.
Kristina Seguin’s 2008 Pontiac G6 went up in flames while she was visiting a friend. Firefighters put out the blaze in minutes, but before they arrived, Seguin had to run to her burning car and save something very near and dear to her heart.
“I heard some commotion outside, and some guy was running up the porch on the phone, and I didn’t know who he was talking to,” said Seguin. “I heard car on fire, and I came out the door, and I saw that it was mine, and I knew my dog was in there, so I went and got her.”
That action saved her five-year-old dog Macy’s life. She left her window open before she went inside, but the dog refused to jump out, and instead, hid on the passenger side as the flames started to grow.
