DC Fire and EMS officials said one dog is at an emergency center receiving treatment after two other dogs were killed in a Northwest apartment fire on Saturday.
First responders began fighting the blaze after 6 p.m. in the 4500 block of McArthur Boulevard.
Flames in a third-floor apartment were controlled, but not before two dogs were killed. Officials reported no human injuries.
The owner of all three dogs reportedly got home shortly after the fire started and removed each dog. Cinder, the only surviving dog rescued from the building, was transported by volunteer first responders with DC’s Friendship Fire Association.
The Veterinary Emergency Group facility between Foggy Bottom and Dupont Circle is treating Cinder.
