A local radio DJ is being called a hero after he spotted a home on fire in Milford and kicked in a door to save a dog.
The fire at the multi-story home in Milford was so intense that the flames spread to nearby brush, causing the blaze to be upgraded to a second alarm.
Chaz, of the popular morning show on WPLR, Chaz & AJ in the Morning, spotted the fire and noticed a dog was inside the home. He then kicked in the door, checked to make sure no one was inside and saved the dog's life.
It's unclear what caused the fire, but officials said the blaze will remain under investigation.
