Fire Claims Elderly Woman's Dog

Posted: Updated:

It was a sad morning for an elderly woman as a fire claims the life of her dog. 

The fire broke out around 2:30 this morning in her home in the 1800 block of Rodd field near Lake View Drive.

According to CCFD, the cause of the fire appears to be a mattress that caught fire from a lit cigarette.

It took fire fighters 20 minutes to knock out that blaze.
