Dog Saves Woman in Deadly House Fire

A man and his dog were killed in a house fire in Buncombe County Tuesday morning. It happened at a home on Aspen Court in the Erwin Hills Community. 

Authorities say 57 year-old Tony Williams lived at the home with his elderly mother. She told News 13 she's alive because her dog, Murphy, woke her up this morning. They escaped through the bedroom window but sadly, firefighters found Williams and his dog, Sabba, dead in the living room. 

Investigators don't know yet what caused the fire, but they believe it started in the kitchen.
