Scottsbluff Blaze Kills Family Dogs, Residents Escape Uninjured

fire-graphicResidents of a Scottsbluff home fled without injury from a fire that caused an estimated $40,000 damage.

Firefighters were dispatched a little after 12:20 a.m. Sunday. The residents had escaped before the firetrucks arrived. Two dogs didn’t make it out and died of smoke inhalation.

Firefighters say heat from a wood-burning stove was transferred to the slate flooring surrounding it, then to wooden joists in the floor.
