You've heard about hero dogs and even hero cats -- but how about a hero rabbit?

Fire officials in Melbourne, Australia, credit a pet rabbit with saving a couple.

Metropolitan Fire Brigade commander Mick Swift says the family pet, named "Rabbit," scratched at the couple's bedroom door waking them.

Officials aren't identifying the couple by name.

But firefighters say the couple awoke in time to escape the fire without being hurt.
