BULLHEAD CITY–Two people and a dog were rescued early Thursday morning from a house fire in the 2600 block of Avenida Grande in Bullhead City.

Bullhead Fire spokeswoman Lori Viles said her agency was dispatched shortly before 1 a.m. to a home whose smoke alarm had been activated in the hallway/bedroom area.

When firefighters arrived, Viles said, light smoke could be seen emitting from the top of the front door.

After making entry into the dwelling, fire crews found a female on the ground in a bedroom and a male on the ground in the kitchen area. Both were immediately removed from the home and taken to Western Arizona Regional Medical Center for treatment. The male was later flown to a Las Vegas hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.

Viles said a dog was found in the home as crews conducted a secondary search of the residence. The dog who had suffered from smoke inhalation, was placed into the custody of the Bullhead Animal Welfare & Care.

The fire had reportedly breached the return air duct system, Viles said.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation with the Bullhead City Fire Department.

    Why are so many saying “on the ground” in a home instead of on the FLOOR? Sorry, but that is one thing that irritates me in print.

    What should irritate you, should be the man lost his life and your worried about a word.
