Pages of History: Firemen save tiny pooch

From the pages of the Del Norte Triplicate,  May 1959.

A tiny puppy, frightened but unhurt, was rescued from the smoking ruins of a fire-swept house trailer by firemen of the Crescent Fire District.

The fire gutted the trailer and adjacent one-room addition owned by Ruby Miller on East Washington Boul­evard, according to Fire Chief Lyle Griffin.

As firemen were leaving the site, they heard a plaintive whine. Capt. Homer Robinson probed the charred wreckage and found the puppy beneath the flooring of the burned building.

“This pup,” the fireman observed, “came very close to being a hot dog!”
