• Newport Fire in Pasadena


    PASADENA (CNS) – Neighbors aided firefighters in the rescue of six birds
    and three dogs today a Pasadena home with a burning attic, a fire official
    said.
    Some sort of construction was underway at the home in the 1900 block of
    Newport Avenue prior to the fire. It was not immediately known if the
    construction ignited the blaze, said Lisa Derderian of the Pasadena Fire
    Department.
    Neighbors called the fire department, which was dispatched to the scene
    about 1:20 p.m. Prior to the arrival of firefighters, neighbors were able to
    rescue some of the birds and dogs left inside the home, where the homeowner was
    out of town, she said.
    “We were fortunate that we were able to get there within five
    minutes,” Derderian said. Firefighters had the fire out within 20 minutes of
    their arrival.
    “We’ll be on the scene for several hours, going room to room to make
    sure there aren’t any flare ups,” she told City News Service.
