MORAINE, Ohio (WDTN) – Fire crews and a passerby rescued two pets while battling a house fire in Moraine Tuesday morning, according to authorities.
The fire broke out shortly after 7:30 am in the 3600 block of Charlotte Mill Drive, near Pinnacle Park Drive in Moraine.
Moraine’s fire chief said that a passerby smelled smoke and heard a fire alarm going off at the home. The person then knocked on the door. When no one answered, the passerby opened the door and a dog ran out. The passerby then called 911.
Crews on scene determined that the fire began in the kitchen of the home.
“It did burn into the structure a little bit, but we were able to knock down pretty quick,” said Moraine Fire Chief David Cooper.
While battling the fire, fire crews said they rescued another dog and a chinchilla from the home.
“Both of them seem to be doing okay right now,” said Chief Cooper.
The homeowners were not home at the time of the fire and no injuries are reported. The house suffered significant smoke damage. There is no word on an estimate of damages.
