A neighbor told a man who was visiting his daughter, who lives on the same street, that she didn’t think anyone was in the burning home, but she thought there were two dogs still inside.

The man ran over to the home, kicked in the door, went inside and got both dogs out.

The second floor, attic and roof of the home sustained fire damage. There was also smoke and water damage on the first floor.
