Telma Botcherby, Ruby’s owner, was treating the dog with flea and tick spray when she noticed a live tick on the floor and tried to burn it with a lighter, according to a Broward Sheriff’s Office report.

The dog became startled and jumped across where Botcherby was trying to burn the tick. The dog then burst into flames, officials said.

“I couldn’t see any dog, no Ruby,” Botcherby said. “She was nothing but flames.”

Botcherby screamed for her husband, Jess Olivas, who picked up Ruby in his arms and jumped into a swimming pool.  Full Article
