Excerpts from the ChicagoTribune.com:

Norwood Park FPD firefighters responded to a call  by a passerby of a basement fire in a single-family residence on the 4100 block of North Ozark Avenue on November 3rd. Family members were not at home at the time.

Firefighters encountered some tough fire including heavy smoke and zero visibility to make their way to the basement area, where they successfully contained the fire.

When the family returned home, they asked about a dog. Lt. Stanley Koy, the incident commander, sent a crew from Franklin Parkinto t he house where they found the dog.

The fire was not suspicious and was electrical in nature. The house sustained moderate smoke damage, as well as some structural damage and the family will be displaced for some time.
