A dog was rescued from a Sunday night house fire in downtown Hobart.
Around 7:09 p.m., police received a call about heavy smoke coming out of the windows of a house located at 317 Center St.
Two officers searched the building — which houses two apartments — and they found a dog in the upstairs apartment. Firefighters quelled the fire about 10 minutes after arriving on scene. Hobart Police Sgt. Greg Viator said there’s a lot of interior smoke and water damage. Viator said the dog’s owner was at work when the fire broke out.
Hobart Fire Chief Brian Taylor said the fire apparently started in the downstairs apartment, which is currently unoccupied. Investigators were on scene to determine what caused the blaze.
