Dog hurt in fire in critical condition
NEW MINAS, N.S. — Firefighters in New Minas were called to a house fire in the village shortly before 9 a.m. Wednesday.
Early reports indicated flames were shooting out of the windows of the Dow Road bungalow, but firefighters were able to knock the fire back quickly. Firefighters were also called on to rescue two dogs from the house, which have been taken to a veterinarian for medical treatment, said New Minas fire Chief Jim Redmond.
“One dog is in critical condition and one is in fair condition,” Redmond said. “We loaded the dogs up in one of the fire vehicles and took them to a vet on Commercial Street. The vet had no problem accepting them for treatment right away.”
