Rescued from a Fire – via the Herald Sun

Durham Fire Department

I love to read in the news about rescue stories involving animals. In a time where the media is focused almost exclusively on negativity, it is a breath of fresh air to read a simply warm-hearted story.

A Goldendoodle Rescued


Last month in Durham, North Carolina a structure fire broke out in a residential area. Durham Police Department Cpl. Dante Ferrel was on his lunch break when he noticed the smoke and decided to investigate. He noticed a house was on fire.

Ferrell saw a dog inside the house. He forced the front door open and the dog, a Goldendoodle named Griffin ran outside.

It took firefighters 20 minutes to control the blaze. There was heavy damage done to the house and some damage to neighboring homes. Luckily nobody, including Griffin the Goldendoodle, was injured.
