Dog starts fire by snatching pizza from stove in Austin

Never mess with a hungry dog.

This one ended up causing about $1,000 in damage to a home in Austin, Texas after jumping onto the stove for a slice — or two — of pizza.

“Minor damage to stove and kitchen after dog inadvertently turned stove on in pursuit of pizza,” the Austin Fire Department tweeted Monday morning.

Crews aired out and cleaned up the smoky home on Arrowwood Drive and left.

No one was hurt, but both people and the pooch in the house were left famished.
