Fire crews rescue dog from burning home

BROOKLYN PARK, Md. - Fire crews rescue a 17-year-old dog from a two-alarm row home fire in Brooklyn Park Monday evening.

The Anne Arundel County Fire Department said crews responded to West Arden Road around 7:30 p.m. Monday after neighbors saw smoke coming from a middle row home.

When first responders go on the scene, they made the call a two-alarm fire because of the neighboring homes.

After fire fighters got into the home, they discovered a dog who was suffering from smoke inhalation.

They brought the dog out and hooked it up to the fire unit's animal-saving equipment.

The 17-year-old dog then started breathing on it's own and is expected to survive.

Crews got the fire under control after 8:20 p.m.

The Red Cross is assisting six adults with food, shelter, and clothing.

No people were injured.

The fire marshal was called in to investigate.
