Dogs rescued from fire that destroyed Denver-area home
GOLDEN, Colorado ” Fifteen Yorkshire Terrier puppies and two adult dogs have been rescued and are in good condition after a fire that destroyed a home in Golden.
Firefighters arrived at a residence at Salvia Court and West 15th Avenue at about 10 p.m. Thursday to find the home engulfed in flames. No one was home at the time because the house was undergoing renovation, but fire crews were told the puppies were in the basement.
Firefighters battled the blaze for about an hour before discovering the wet ” but alive ” puppies in the basement.
Authorities say the home was a total loss.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
