3 dogs rescued from house fire

Firefighters rescued three dogs from a burning house in Southwest Roanoke on Thursday night, said Roanoke Fire-EMS Battalion Chief Audie Ferris.

In case you were wondering why I haven't posted information on the other fires recently it is due to two reasons. For some reason I have not been getting email notifications when press releases are published on the fires. I will check and make sure I am still signed up, although Administration might have stopped publishing them. The other reason is because rarely does anyone send in information on fires they run. I get a lot of questions about this. I try to do a write up on most of the fires I run on, both of them. HA. If you would like to share information like the address, what you had, and who responded, just email it to me at
