PLANTATION, FLA. (WSVN) - A dog that went missing after a fire broke out Friday morning inside a Plantation apartment building has been found safe.
Firefighters rushed to put out the fire inside a unit at an apartment complex on Northwest 10th Court and 47th Avenue, Friday morning.
Some of the units in the building received smoke and water damage. A neighbor called 911.
“I saw a screen, a window screen fall, so when I looked out my back window, when I went out on my porch, there was nothing but flames coming from upstairs, so I had to just hurry up and grab my son and sprint out the building,” said resident Khadija Clarke-Lowe.
The department tweeted a video of a firefighter holding the dog wrapped in a towel, Friday afternoon.
Responding firefighters extinguished the heavy smoke and flames coming from the apartment.
Fire officials said the resident of the apartment wasn’t home at the time.
No injuries were reported.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
