Family dog saved after house fire in Allegan County

CASCO TOWNSHIP, MICH. - Fire crews revive a family dog after a house fire breaks out in Casco Township Thursday morning.

According to authorities, the fire was at a home on Baseline Road near 70th Street on March 16.

The dog was found semi-conscious on the bathroom floor -- it was given oxygen at the scene and then taken to a local veterinarian's office. The veterinarian says the dog is expected to recover and will be reunited with it's family at the end of the day after observations.

If the family's dog does not stay stable, the family tells us they will have to take it to an emergency veterinarian's office in Kalamazoo.

Although the family's dog is expected to be alright, they have confirmed their two cats died in the fire. The family is safe, no one was home when the fire broke out.

South Haven Area Emergency Services were assisted by the Ganges Township Fire Department in putting out the fire and reviving the family's dog.

Authorities say the flames could be seen on the front porch and coming out of a front window. Most of the fire was contained to the living room, however the cause is still under investigation.
