PLEASANT VIEW TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – The Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department responded to a house fire in the Pleasant Hills Subdivision, in the city of Pleasant View, around 1pm today.
When the first crews arrived they found heavy smoke coming from the garage doors and the occupant told the firefighters that everyone was out of the home except for two dogs.
The firefighters quickly made entry into the home and were able to knock down the fire and find the two dogs who had tried to hide under items stored in the garage.
The dogs were quickly brought outside, barely breathing. According to Chief P.J. Duncan with Pleasant View Fire Department, Cheatham County EMS medics quickly went to work. Once the dogs were stabilized they were carried to a local vet by the Pleasant View Police Chief.
The dogs were later brought back to the scene and seemed to be doing much better. The owner of the dogs decided to take them to a animal hospital in Nashville for specialized treatment to be sure they are OK, Chief Duncan said.
The garage sustained moderate fire damage with light smoke throughout the entire home. No fire damage was sustained inside the home.
The occupant was taking a shower at the time of the fire and was alerted by the smoke alarms. She quickly called 911 and got out of the home.
“The Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department is thankful the home was saved, the dogs are doing better, and everyone made it out safely due to working smoke alarms,” Duncan said.
The Pleasant View Volunteer Fire Department was assisted by the Ashland City Fire Department, Pleasant View Police Department, Cheatham County EMS, and Cheatham County EMA.
