Cleaning his room and listening to music, 27-year-old Randy Bova didn't have a clue the house was burning down around him.
"I think we would have lost my brother due to the speed the fire spread," Robert Bova, Randy's brother, says, his voice cracking with emotion, as he recounts the story to The Dodo.
Robert and Randy' mother, Lucy, wasn't home at the time of the fire, but Randy wasn't alone in the house that recent Saturday afternoon. He was stirred by a sudden, frantic barking at his door. It was the family dog, Bailey.
