KHQ Exclusive:Normandie duplex fire victim reunited with lost dogs

SPOKANE, Wash.- Spokane County fire crews say a structure fire that broke out just after 10 p.m. at 6918 N. Normandie severely damaged a duplex, engulfing both homes in flames. No one was home when the fire started, however there were pets inside the structure when the fire broke out.

KHQ talked to two witnesses who said they were driving by when they saw the flames and kicked open doors to rescue a pair of dogs. The dogs are said to have run away from the scene. KHQ received a call Thursday morning from a friend of the dogs' owner who asked that anyone with any information about the dog's whereabouts call them immediately.

While Ana Cabrera was at the scene of the duplex fire, both dogs actually returned to their home. Ana was on the phone with the owners' friend when she saw the dogs come home. The friend quickly hung up and called the dog owner, who drove immediately back to the duplex to pick up her dogs.

Ana talked exclusively with that woman early Thursday morning-- both about the loss of her home, and the joy in being reunited with her dogs. KHQ has linked that video to our web channel and to view it, you can CLICK HERE

KHQ was also rolling when Ana Cabrera told the dog owner's friend about finding the dogs. That was the first the home owner heard that her dogs were okay and had been seen. That video is available by CLICKING HERE

The good news of Thursday morning still comes on very bad new from Wednesday night. The two families that lived in either side of the duplex lost nearly everything. Fire investigators still have not determined a cause. They will be on scene throughout the day.
