Deputies and firefighters responded to Jerome Trailer park at 6633 Maloney Avenue at 1 p.m. to reports of a trailer on fire. When they arrived, residents of the park told them they thought there were dogs inside the trailer.
Firefighters were able to pull the two dogs out of the smoke filled structure, still alive. They administered first aid to them and, as of this afternoon, it appears the dogs will be fine. The trailer was severely damaged by fire and the Fire Marshalls Office is investigating the cause of the fire.
