Deputy First Class Marcus Dawson to the rescue!
Excerpts from the Fox News story:
K-9 Deputy First Class Marcus Dawson responded to the home in the west section of Palm Coast after a neighbor reported that a fire appeared to have broken out in the kitchen, the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office said. The neighbor told Dawson that he hadn’t seen the three people who lived there that day.
Dawson checked the home from the outside and saw that a fire on the stove was spreading to the kitchen cabinets, the sheriff’s office said. Dawson yelled commands into the home but didn’t get a response. He saw dogs barking at the rear screen door as black smoke filled the home.

Apparently the father left the young boy alone with an older sibliing while he went to get dinner. Ugh.
Since you can’t see Deputy Dawson in the video, here’s a picture of him and his regular K-9 partner, Baro.
