2 dogs saved from house fire next to Raleigh fire station

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) -- Two dogs were rescued when fire crews in Raleigh responded to a house fire Saturday evening.

The fire was reported before 7 p.m. at a home in the 3900 block of Barwell Road in southeast Raleigh.

Crews did not have to travel far to fight the blaze -- Raleigh fire station 26 is just across a street from the home.

The fire was so close to the station that the station's fire crews are the ones who first noticed the blaze and reported it. Also, a hydrant on the station's property was used to fight the flames.

At least six fire trucks were on the scene, and Wake County Animal Control also responded.

No one was at home when the fire broke out because the family was at church, officials said.

Fire crews got one dog out OK, but the other dog ran out and then ran away from the scene, officials said.
