Firefighters Rescue Dog From Danville Fire

Firefighters Rescue Dog From Danville Fire

A late Sunday morning fire in Danville left heavy damage to a home at 34 South Griffin Street.  There were no injuries to firefighters or family members who lived there, but firefighters revived a dog they rescued from the home.

Danville Firefighters say the original alarm said there was a fire on the porch, but when they arrived they found the back half of the home in flames.  After being told there was a dog still inside the home firefighters were inside looking for it.  They found the dog unresponsive, but say it appeared to be alright a few minutes after being administered some oxygen by firefighters.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.  The American Red Cross is assisting the family.
