Dogs alert homeowner to fire

ANDERSON TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) - A homeowner is thankful to be unhurt after his dogs alerted him to a fire early Tuesday morning.

It happened just after 3 a.m. on Yarger Avenue.

Arriving crews found the garage portion of the house on fire. They were able to get the fire out, but had some issues with frozen water from the hydrant.

The homeowner told crews his dogs started barking, waking him up, and he heard the 2nd floor smoke detector sounding. When he got out of bed, he smelled smoke and he noticed a light haze on the second floor.

He noticed heavier smoke on the lower level, so he left the house with his dogs and called 911.

 

The cause of the fire is under investigation at this time.
