Family returns to burned home, finds dog

CARLSBAD, Calif. – A family returned to their Carlsbad home to find it completely destroyed by a wildfire Wednesday, but all they were doing was smiling.

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.
