A dog named Hero who made news in 2007 when she was united with the New Hampshire family of a fallen soldier has been rescued from a house fire. Firefighters responded to the Newport home of Skip and Rhonda Rollins at about 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. They rescued Hero, another dog, and two cats. No one else was inside. Firefighters said Hero was not breathing when she was carried from the house. Firefighters provided medical attention to the dog that included oxygen from their own equipment; she started breathing again.
