Firefighters rescue puppy in Waterloo house fire

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters rescued a puppy after a fire in Waterloo.

This happened at a home in the 1400 block of Robin Road around 10:30 p.m. Friday night.

Firefighters say they believe the fire started in the bedroom and quickly spread throughout the home.

The home is very close to the Waterloo Fire Station and when a crew arrived, the back of the home was on fire.

Two people and six dogs, including three puppies were inside at the time of the fire.

Both of the people and several dogs were outside when firefighters arrived, but one puppy was missing.

Firefighters found the missing puppy about 35 minutes after the fire was reported. Firefighters gave the puppy oxygen and it is expected to survive.

They said the puppy was moving and by its mother by the time they left the scene.

Both people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Firefighters say the inside of the home is a loss, but the people were more concerned about their animals.

Thankfully, they were all accounted for when firefighters left.

Red Cross was also called to assist.

Firefighters do not believe this fire is suspicious.
