Dolores and the Big Fire: Dolores and the Big Fire

(view spoiler)[Dolores can save her owner from a painful death from smoke inhalation (what would have actually killed Kyle), but Dolores can't save Kyle from his otherwise solitary existence.

Dolores needs to wake up Kyle before the fire traps both of them in the house. She does succeed but is critically wounded.
