Designer dog burns down kitchen
A pet dog caused £30,000 of damage when it turned on its owner's cooker and burnt down the kitchen.
Skylar, a three-year-old "goldendoodle", apparently started a kitchen fire when she tried to jump on the stove to get left-over pizza.
It happened after her owner, Fred Haines, left his home in Naperville, Illinois, to go to work, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
The fire spread to a nearby plastic cutting board, and then to the cabinets above the stove, Naperville fire officials said.
Firefighters broke down a door after neighbours phoned them and rescued the unconscious Skylar.
