Elle the Pit Bull, a therapy dog from Roanoke Rapids, and her pet parent, Leah Brewer, recently visited the Littleton Fire Department to help The Warren Record develop a short fire safety video for use in Warren County elementary school classrooms in recognition of October as Fire Safety Month.

Elle demonstrates the use of the Stop! Drop! and Roll! technique to extinguish fire on clothing.

Last year, Elle was chosen for a 2013 American Hero Dog award by the American Humane Association for her work as a therapy dog, including reading with students at Vaughan Elementary School.
