THREE RIVERS (WKZO) -- A house fire early Wednesday in Three Rivers had more than its share of bad news. The first calls came in around 12:30AM Wednesday, that a home in the 1200-block of 5th Street was on fire.
Smoke detectors aroused the two people sleeping inside who had just enough time to escape before the home became engulfed in smoke and flames.
One firefighter was hurt when he fell down a set of stairs, but was able to complete a second fire attack on the fire in the second story before he was hauled off to the hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
The two family dogs did not survive the fire, despite the efforts of the owners to save them.
