But what happens in a neighborhood when a house fire occurs, is simply wonderful: The neighbors all band together and help – without interfering with emergency personnel and vehicles – to ease the pain of destruction. No person was injured, thank goodness. However, a white house cat is missing and no one knows if it got out. And Guinness, an older Black Lab, had to be rescued by the firemen. We resuscitated him with O2 and a face mask, provided by the BFD. This morning I found out he has burned corneas, he is on IV fluids and his lungs are damaged. Here are some photos of the incident. Thank you all of the neighbors of Jefferson Street. Left Click any of these photos to see enlarged.
