A woman and her dog safely escaped from their burning home Monday morning in St. Lawrence County.
Officials said two passersby spotted a fire at a home at 126 County Route 40 in the town of Norfolk shortly after 6 a.m.
Those passersby alerted the owner, Joan McGlaughian, by pounding on her door.
She and her pet dog got out of the burning house okay.
Firefighters from Norfolk, Norwood, Louisville and Massena battled the blaze.
