A Metro police detective was on his way to work when he spotted a home on fire in north Nashville.
Detective Russell Thompson saw cars in the driveway of a burning home on 24th Avenue at about 9:45 a.m.
He was afraid someone was inside so kicked in the door. However, Thompson only found the family’s dog, Hallsey, which he carried outside to safety.
“I tried to tie him up in the back yard so he wouldn’t run around, but he kind of snapped at me, so I don’t know how grateful he was,” said Thompson.
No one was hurt in the fire, but the house was badly damaged.
