LIVONIA – Firefighters saved a house from disaster on Easter Sunday at Vanzandt and South Livonia Road.

According to first responders who were at the scene, the emergency call went out at about 1:05 p.m. and Livonia Fire Chief PJ Dwyer arrived first on scene to find a working structure fire.

“Crews quickly knocked down the fire that was held to the kitchen area,” said Dwyer. “Nobody was home at the time of the fire but one dog was rescued from the house and is doing fine.”

First responders said that another dog ran from the scene and was struck and killed by a vehicle.

Dwyer called for mutual aid from the Conesus Fire Department and a Firefighter Assist and Search Team (FAST) from the East Avon Fire Department.

“The guys did a great job today at the fire, quick knockdown and saved the house,” posted Dwyer to Facebook. “Very proud.”
