A dog was rescued by police and firefighters from a house fire in Seneca County.

The Seneca County Sheriff’s Office reports that on January 27th at around 8 a.m., deputies responded to 7587 County Road 129 in the Town of Ovid for a house fire. Responding deputies were able to quickly extinguish the fire, which was localized around the front doorway. When the Ovid Fire Department arrived, the scene was turned over to them to ensure all fires were extinguished. Deputies discovered a dog was still in the residence alive. Deputies and Firefighters went into the home and safely removed the dog. The residence was then cleared by Deputies and no animals or people were located inside.

The homeowner, Derek Steen was not present at the time of the fire but was later notified. It was reported that there is no insurance coverage for the residence.

Deputies were assisted on the scene by South Seneca Ambulance, Seneca County Codes, and the Seneca County Fire Investigation Team. The responding Fire Agencies were Lodi Fire, and Interlaken Fire.

Members of the South Seneca Ambulance crew rendered aid to the dog, who was eventually taken to a Veterinarian and turned back over to the owner.

The South Seneca Ambulance Corp. rendered aid to the dog after it was rescued from the house. EMT McCord and Paramedic Loan were able to make sure the dog was properly treated prior to its checkup at the vet. (photo: Jeffrey McCord, Seneca/Cayuga Fire Wire Facebook)
