John Hanzl recounts what happened this morning with his dog, Izzy:
Woke us up this morning (5:20am) whining, when she never does. So I took her out (live in ancient loft on top floor in south end and only people in building). Was confronted with overwhelming smell of gas on way outside. So called 911 - we are friends with firemen at the Eagle. They came - long story, building main electrical feed was shorting downstairs. and the arcing was causing ozone, that Izzy smelled and saved our lives.
