Dog dies in Evansville house fire

A family pet died in an early morning house fire in Evansville on Thursday.

Firefighters were sent to a home on Linwood Ave. just after 5 a.m.

No one was home at the time, but a dog was found inside.

Firefighters gave the dog CPR for 20 minutes but were not able to revive the pet.

The fire was put out within 30 minutes.

Vectren was called to turn off the power as the line had burned off the home.

Evansville District Fire Chief Tim Krack said, “The fire was mostly on the first floor. It was burning up the back of the house when we got here and extending into the attic space from the outside. We had a lot of fire when we got here.”

Investigators arrived on the scene shortly after the fire was put out.

At this time, there is no word on what caused the fire.
