A HERO jogger used a Ring doorbell to enter a stranger's home and rescue their pets from an inferno after spotting the burning house.

The Good Samaritan, identified locally as Paul Murphy, was out for a run when he came across smoke swirling around a house in Scotts Valley, California.

The homeowners, who were out at the time, didn't realise the danger their pets were in - until Murphy used their Ring doorbell to speak to them.

Homeowner Courtney Polito told WTHR 13 that she saw Murphy ...running back and forth... outside the house.

...Hello, do you see there's smoke coming out of the top of your house,... the jogger can be heard saying to Polito.

As the smoke alarms were going off, Polito gave him the home access code and Murphy ran into the house to save the family's two dachshunds, a rabbit and a cat.

Polito said if Murphy didn’t step in to help when he did, they would have lost everything.

“The fire department said 10 more minutes and the house would have been gone,” she said.
