Dog killed in mobile-home fire; no injuries reported

January 28, 2012


A Saturday evening fire destroyed a mobile home at 1908 E. 19th St. and killed a small dog, Lawrence-Douglas County Fire Medical officials said. No one was hurt in the fire, which began about 5 p.m. and was under control by 6 p.m.

The single occupant of the home is staying with friends, and the Red Cross has been contacted to assist with recovery, Division Chief Doug Green said.

Crews are still investigating the cause of the fire.

My condolences to the family. Losing a pet hurts. One reason I have a dog door is so hopefully my guy could get out if a fire broke out and I'm not home.

What makes this story even more sad, is the woman who lost her dog in this fire had just lost her husband in November. Please keep her in your prayers. She has had such a devastating few months. Her family is beside her and love her dearly which is what will help her through all of this.
