Firefighters say quick action saved residents, but several pets were lost in a fire that happened during the morning hours along Catchpole Road in North Rose.
On October 11, a significant house fire prompted an urgent response from the Clyde Fire Department, along with the Rose and North Rose fire departments.
Initial reports indicated a person was still inside attempting to rescue pets while a bedroom was ablaze.
The first to the scene, North Rose’s chief, confirmed a working fire, leading to Wallington, Wolcott, and Alton fire departments to join the response.
Teams quickly initiated an interior attack, employing multiple hand lines for fire suppression.
Once the fire was subdued, crews conducted an exhaustive overhaul to ensure the fire was entirely extinguished.
Thankfully, there was no human loss of life. However, some pets couldn’t be saved.
As the family deals with their loss, the Clyde Fire Department commended the excellent teamwork of all units involved and urged the community to keep the affected family in their thoughts.
