Firefighters save 2 dogs, man on roof in 2 overnight fires

Posted: Updated:

Two early morning house fires, not far from one another, ended with two close calls.

During one fire, around 4:30 a.m. Saturday on Richardson near Cherry St., a man narrowly escaped.

Firefighters say that man was a neighbor who was trapped on the ledge of the second story of a home that was on fire.

They used a ladder to help the man climb down to safety.

Investigators say the man spotted the fire and went inside the home to make sure no one was inside.

The fire started in a basement, according to firefighters, who add no one was hurt.

A separate blaze happened one hour earlier on East Park St.

Firefighters there pulled two dogs from the burning home.

Both animals are unharmed. The people who live there were not at home at the time of the fire.
