Not only did they put down a fire that damaged two houses early Friday morning but left no serious injuries, they also rescued a dog from one of the houses.

Fire Director Armando Roman says the three-alarm fire started in a vacant home on Grant Avenue at a little before 1 a.m. Firefighters had the blaze under control by about 2 a.m.

About 14 people in an adjacent house got out safely, with one brought to a hospital for smoke inhalation.

Crews discovered a large pit bull in the occupied house and resuscitated it by giving it oxygen for about 10 minutes.

Roman says the fire may have been started by homeless people in the vacant house.
