The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ATLANTIC -

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.”
