Fire damages house


Neighbors alerted 911 to a burning home on Line Street on Tuesday afternoon. The call came at 1 p.m. to a residence in the 800 block. Several people who live in the area reported they could see flames coming out of the windows of the structure. Engine 5 and Ladder 5 were first on the scene. The house was about 50% involved with fire venting through the windows and roof. Crews were able to get the blaze under control quickly. During searches of the residence, a family pet was located and resuscitat­ion efforts were made. The small dog died. Crews remained on scene for some time, pulling ceilings and focusing on hot spots to make sure everything was fully extinguish­ed. There were no other injuries. The residents were not home at the time of the fire. The cause is under investigat­ion.
