Dogs rescued from house fire
Two dogs have been rescued from a house fire in Cambridge - the third Waikato fire in as many days.
Firefighters were called to a "well involved'' blaze at a house on Browning St about 11:20am today.
On arrival, two dogs were found to be trapped inside, but they were freed by firefighters. A vet has been called to the house to examine them.
Nobody was at home when the fire started. Fire safety are at the scene investigating the cause.
It's the second house fire involving the rescue of dogs, and the third house fire since Saturday.
Firefighters saved four dogs from a McAndrew St, Kihikihi house, shortly before 4pm on Saturday.
No one was home when the fire started which appeared to have begun in the roof.
And a Waharoa house has been severly damaged after a fire began about 8.45pm yesterday.
The occupants of the Jagger Rd property were in Tauranga when the fire began in an area around the fireplace which also borders a balcony.
The tenants say they're thankful to have insurance but have been left with no possessions.
