Firefighters Rescue Dog

November 1, 2007, several calls came in reporting smoke coming from a home on River View Trail in Roscoe. Neighbors told firefighters on scene that they didn't think anyone was home, but that their dog was probably inside. Forcible entry at the front door was made and the dog was found in a kennel by the back door;he was taken outside. Firefighters searched, and although smoke filled the home, no fire was found. They did find that a fire had burned in the basement, but water from a broken pipe had extinguished the fire. The cause of the fire was combustibles too close to the flame on the water heater.
