Firefighter Rescues Two Yorkie Dogs from Upland House Fire

UPLAND – Two Yorkie dogs were rescued by firefighters responding to a residential structure fire in an Upland home.

At around 8:40 p.m. San Bernardino County Fire Department firefighters responded to the report of a possible fire. When the first truck arrived at the single-story single-family home around 5 minutes following the call, they saw light smoke showing from the attic vents. The firefighters entered the home through the back to find smoke showing from a bathroom. An interior attack was initiated. “Initial priorities on the incident were to search for any potential victims as well as suppress and contain the interior fire,” said San Bernardino County Fire Department Public Information Officer Jeremy Kern. “Upon entry a primary search was conducted where two small dogs were found and removed from the structure. The two small Yorkies were checked and appeared to be doing well when they were returned to their owners.”

It took 17 fire personnel around 15 minutes to have the fire under control. Damage to the property was limited to the rear of the home in and near the bathroom. There are no damage estimates available at this time, the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
