Police and firefighters had Apex Road blocked at River Road to battle a lunchtime fire in a house apparently divided into three apartments.
Battalion Chief Bryan Watson said firefighters who went into the blazing house rescued a dog from 831-B Apex Road, but found no other occupants. The fire reported about 12:30 p.m. was under control in 10 to 15 minutes, he said.
The house sustained extensive damage, he said. The cause of the fire was not yet determined.
