The Eau Claire Fire Department responded to a structure fire overnight on the city’s West side.
Crews arrived to find smoke showing from the front of the residence; the occupants of the home had already gotten out. Crews made entry into the residence and located fire on the first floor of an interior room. At the same time, additional crews started a search of the residence, located and removed a dog. The dog was tended to by fire department personnel and returned to residents and the fire was contained to a single room.
The structure was then ventilated and checked for further fire extension. The fire remains under investigation.
