Halton police were on scene for an animal rescue in Georgetown today (Feb. 6).

A house fire broke out this afternoon at a home on Delrex Blvd. Police arrived at the home and were told by neighbours that the homeowners were not home, but that three large German Shepherds were normally in the house.

“Officers entered the smoke filled home crawling on their hands and knees. Cst. Ryan Brown and Cst. Micheal Kenny searched the home, finding no persons in the home,” said police.

The officers located the three dogs and safely removed them from the residence.

Halton Hills Fire arrived on scene and quickly extinguished the fire.

“The amount of damage as a result of the fire is unknown at this time,” said police. “The officers and the canines were treated by paramedics at the scene and all are reported to be doing well.”

The cause of the fire is still being investigated but is not believed to be suspicious at this time.
