Thanks to the loyal pup, Probst woke up just in time- flames were consuming her kitchen.
That's when Probst's motherly-instinct kicked in.
I opened up the garage door, ran out to the back, busted out this window," Probst said. "There wasn't time to think."
What started as an electical fire, quickly spread through the whole kitchen, scorching it from ceiling to floor.
Probst gathered up her two children and the family pets and put them in the garage, then she went back for the essentials.
"If it wasn't in reach, I don't need it," Probst said.
One of the hardest parts of the whole ordeal was calling her husband, who is serving in the Air Force overseas, to give him the news.
"He was frantic," Probst said.
Probst, her two children, and the family pets are now living on base in a home provided by the Air Force.
Her husband, John, is on his way home, where he will stay for two weeks to help rebuild his family's home.
