SAGAMORE HILLS — A dog and the neighbor who reported a fire in the kitchen of a Greenwood Village condo Tuesday morning were treated for smoke inhalation, but no other injuries were reported, according to Macedonia firefighters.
Firefighters responded to the neighbor’s call around 10:25 Tuesday morning after the neighbor reported he heard an alarm and smelled smoke coming from the condo, one of eight in the building at 1005 Canyon View Road.
Firefighters reported smoke from the locked condo, forced the door and found heavy smoke and a fully involved kitchen fire, said Fire Chief Tim Black. Another team of firefighters found a dog, which was barely breathing. They treated it with oxygen using special masks donated to the department by the Invisible Fence Co. The animal was taken to Sagamore Animal Hospital for further treatment and is expected to survive, Black said.
Nobody was home at the condo, and the resident who reported the fire was the only resident in the building. The condo is not habitable at this time and investigators are in the process of determining the cause. A damage estimate also was not available.
Northfield Village firefighters provided mutual aid at the scene and the Brecksville Fire Department provided mutual aid for an unrelated call.
