A Las Vegas Valley teacher is devastated after a house fire destroys everything she owns and claims the life of her beloved dog, Cooper.

Lauryn Ratigan, a first grade teacher at Marion Earl Elementary in Las Vegas, hid her pain from her 1st grade students but an observant parent learns more and writes the FOX5 Surprise Squad for a help. The Surprise Squad teams up with the Vegas Golden Knights to brighten Ms. Ratigan’s spirits and deliver her a Knight of unbelievable surprises.
