Dallas Bay Volunteer firefighters worked quickly to save three dogs from dying in a house fire on Sunday morning.

At 8:30 a.m., a 911 call was made by a motorist reporting fire and smoke coming from back of the house at 2000 Dallas Lake Road.

Dallas Bay Volunteer Fire Department arrived on the scene within four minutes confirming heavy smoke and fire coming from the rear of the house. Firefighters entered the house, found one bedroom on fire and contained the fire to the one room.
