Pets saved in house fire
FAMILY pets were rescued from a house fire in Glenorchy yesterday afternoon.
Tasmania Police and two Tasmania Fire Service crews attended an address in Devines Rd just after 4pm and found the front of the house on fire.
Hobart senior station officer Mike Netherton said nobody was home at the time, but neighbours raised the alarm and indicated that pets may have been inside the property. The frightened pets were coaxed outside and the blaze was quickly contained. The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
