A brave widow died after she rushed into a house fire to save her five children

Kristina Stratton, 38, whose husband died of cancer four years ago, was found dead in her charred Bakersfield, California home. Next to Stratton was the body of their family dog, Duncan, who did not want to leave his owner’s side.

The mother of five had gone to the movies with one of her daughters when she received a call from another daughter who said that their house was on fire – and her four children were stuck inside.

Stratton’s daughter had been sleeping when the fire started, but the family dog, Duncan, woke the girl up by biting her on the arm.

Stratton left the movie and rushed back to the burning two-story house, running inside before emergency responders arrived.

As she entered the smoke-filled home, she did not notice that her children were climbing out of a second-floor window on to the roof of a nearby RV. All four children inside the home survived – but Stratton never came out of the house.

Four minors living in the home were able to evacuate the home and suffered minor to moderate injuries from smoke inhalation. The children were taken to a local hospital where the were treated for smoke inhalation and minor injuries. Authorities are still investigating the cause of the fire.

Stratton’s death makes her three youngest children, whose father died of cancer years ago, orphans.
