LARGO, Fla. (AP) -- A poodle alerted a Tampa Bay-area man that his house was on fire.

The Pinellas County Sheriff's Office says Sean Elders was listening to music Wednesday morning when his poodle started barking frantically. Deputies say Elders saw the dog near the laundry room. As he went to check it out, he heard a loud explosion and saw smoke
coming from the laundry room. Elders grabbed the dog and a cat and
got out of the house.

Authorities say he was treated at the scene. No other injuries were reported. An investigation into what caused the fire is continuing.
