Firefighters Rescue 4 Dogs from House Fire
PARMA, Ohio — A house fire in Parma did about $20,000 in damage, and while that’s extremely devastating, it could have done a lot worse.
Four dogs were inside when the flames began, and no one was home to save them.
According to the Parma Fire Department, the fire started just before 4 a.m. on Saturday in the 7700 block of Bertha Avenue.
A neighbor alerted emergency crews, and nearly two dozen firefighters responded.
Eighteen were from Parma, along with five from Parma Heights.
They found a room in the back of the house on fire and worked quickly to put it out.
Four dogs were rescued from the home, unharmed.
Investigators are working to determine a cause.
