Three residents were already out of the house, but two dogs were trapped inside
Clark County Fire District 6 Firefighters were able to save one of two dogs Monday morning in a Hazel Dell house fire. Flames were visible as fire engines arrived at the home on NW 94th Street. Three residents were already out of the house, but two dogs were trapped inside.
Firefighters located the dogs and were able to save one. With the assistance of a Clark County Sheriff’s Deputy, that dog was rushed to an emergency vet. Unfortunately the other dog could not be saved.
The Clark County Fire Marshal is already on scene and will determine both the fires’ cause as well as the damage estimate. The house is not habitable, and residents say they are making their own lodging plans.
This house is around the corner from Station 61, so response time was in a matter of minutes, and it took CCFD6 Firefighters less than a half hour to extinguish the blaze.
