Neighbors and firefighters rescued three Pomeranians from a burning Mililani townhouse Wednesday, but a fourth did not survive.
“Neighbors did major Good Samaritan work,” fire Capt. Terry Seelig said. “They responded quickly to the smell and saw smoke coming out, and they chose to break the door,” freeing two dogs that were right by the door.
The residents, a woman and her adult son, were not home at the time of the 10:30 a.m. blaze, which was under control within five minutes of firefighters’ arrival, and extinguished at 10:50 a.m.
