DANVILLE — Fire damaged a home Sunday, but Danville firefighters were able to rescue a dog.

At 11 a.m., firefighters received a call about a back porch on fire at 34 S. Griffin.

En route, they were advised that flames were showing from the back of the home, a spokesman said.

When they arrived, they saw fire coming from the eaves of the second floor and the back half of the home involved.

The residents were able to get out safely, and there were no injuries to firefighters.

Upon their search of the house, firefighters found a puppy that was lethargic and breathing shallowly.

They took the dog to the truck, put a warm blanket on it and administered oxygen. The dog was quickly revived.

Firefighters were on the scene until shortly after 1 p.m.

The two-story home was considered a total loss, the spokesman said. The cause is still under investigation.
