Berlin Heights, Ohio – A devoted teenager in Ohio died on Sunday morning while trying to save her beloved dogs from a devastating house fire. As reported by Cleveland 19 News, 15-year-old Rhianne King ran directly into harm’s way in an effort to save her dogs from the blaze.
Kaelyn Wells, Rhianne’s older sister, told the news agency:
