Dog recovering after being rescued from a burning home

Posted by wlpo on February 9, 2011

A dog that was rescued from a burning house in La Salle is reportedly still hanging on.  The dog was pulled from the home on Fourth Street Tuesday afternoon.

La Salle Fire Chief Andy Bacidore says it sounds like the blaze started in the basement.  The house is considered destroyed.

A man and woman that live in the home were released from St. Margaret’s Hospital after being examined.  Two dogs were also inside of the house. One made it out on its own while the other was removed by firefighters and needed to be revived using a special animal oxygen mask.

Bacidore believes the man and woman are staying with family while the one dog was staying with a neighbor.
