Firefighters rescued two dogs from a fire Saturday afternoon that left a home near Woodstock uninhabitable due to damage, officials said.
The Woodstock Fire/Rescue District responded around 2:34 p.m. Saturday to the 13400 block of Davis Road in unincorporated Woodstock for a report of a structure fire.
Firefighters arrived on the scene within four minutes and observed heavy smoke showing from the front of a two-story home, according to Woodstock Fire/Rescue District spokesman Alex Vucha.
Crews quickly engaged in an aggressive interior attack while simultaneously setting up rural water supply operations.
The area does not have fire hydrants so all water had to be shuttled in, Vucha said.
The fire was considered under control within ten minutes and was contained to the kitchen.
Two dogs were rescued by firefighters and both are in good health, Vucha said. There were no reported injuries to any civilians or firefighters.
Overhaul and investigations continued for an additional two hours.
The home sustained heavy smoke damage throughout and is considered uninhabitable. A damage estimate was not immediately available.
Vucha said the fire is not considered suspicious in nature but it remains under investigation by the Woodstock Fire/Rescue District.
