Dog Polo Dies After Shielding Baby Viviana from Fire

Quote:
An 8-month-old infant is in serious condition after a fire late Sunday in Baltimore.

The girl is alive today thanks to an act of heroism and a heart-breaking loss for her family.

Baltimore City Fire Department spokesman Samuel Johnson said the fire was reported at 10:45 p.m. in the 6800 block of Gough Street.

Johnson said when crews arrived, the two-story rowhome had heavy fire and smoke showing from the first and second floors.

Firefighters learned the child was trapped on the second floor of the home. Those units made entry into the home and were able to rescue the infant, who was taken to the hospital, Johnson said.

Johnson said the infant’s mother, Erika Poremski, was home when the fire occurred. The fire was placed under control within 30 minutes.

Poremski said she had quickly stepped out to her car when she turned around to find the house in flames and her daughter, Viviana, inside.

"I just heard her crying and i couldn't get to her," Poremski said. "I tried really hard, everyone in the neighborhood tried. They were kicking the doors in and kicking the windows out. I couldn't (get her out). Nobody could."

Poremski had burns on her hands and face from when she repeatedly tried to go back into the house to rescue Viviana.

Firefighters said when the entered the home to rescue Viviana, they found Poremski's dog, Polo, in the room with her and he was covering her with his body.

"She only had burns on her side because of it," Poremski said. "He stayed with her the whole time in the bedroom and wouldn't even come downstairs to get out the door."

Paramedics were able to revive Viviana, who has severe burns on her face, arm and side. But Polo did not survive the fire.

"He was my first baby and now I lost him," Poremski said. "And I'm just praying I don't lose her. She's all I have and it just happened so fast, I just don't understand it. I just don't know why this stuff happens."

Poremski said she is extremely grateful for the support she has received. A GoFundMe page had raised more than $6,400 through 7 a.m. Tuesday.

No other injuries were reported but the family was displaced by the fire, Johnson said.

Poremski said her daughter's condition is still serious and will be monitored day to day.

"She's doing the best she can right now," Poremski said. And she's fighting and that's it. She's a really good girl I just hope she's OK."

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Johnson said.

A GoFundMe page has been set up for the family.

What a story! What a great dog!

I really hope this doesn't turn out to be one of those Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy cases.
