“Firefighters responded to a house fire Saturday in southeast Yelm.
The fire occurred about 2:20 p.m. at a home in the 21000 block of South Terra Lane in the Clearwood Community. Fire units arrived to find the houses garage engulfed in flames. The fire extended to the first and second floor of the house, according to Bald Hills Fire Department Chief Mark Gregory.”
“A male occupant of the house had suffered burns to his hand while trying to save a dog from the fire. The fire was extinguished relatively quickly, but the dog died in the blaze.”
“Southeast Thurston Fire Authority and Fire District 12 of Tenino also responded to the scene.”
