Anya Bannash’s family was evacuated from their Carlsbad home on the 5900 block of Black Rail Road Wednesday morning after a wildfire tore through the canyons.
Fox 5’s cameras were rolling as the fire torched the two-story home.
When Bannash’s family was allowed to return to the neighborhood in the afternoon and they stood watching the remaining structure smoldering – to their surprise -, their dog “Rocky” came running out from bushes and into their arms.
“[Our house is full of] materials we can eventually get again, but as far as our family and pets – you can’t just come up with another Rocky or family,” Rocky’s owner told Fox5.
Rocky suffered burns to his backside.
