A woman’s pet cat pawed her face and woke her during a trailer fire in Melba that killed her dog.

The Idaho Press-Tribune reports Murphy-Reynolds-Wilson Fire chief Wes Anderson says the cat saved the woman from the Thursday morning fire.

Anderson said a cigarette may have ignited the single-wide mobile home.

Fire crews put out the blaze and helped the woman bury her dog.
