The Campbell River Fire Department responded to a fire in the 500 block of South Birch St. this afternoon.
The crews arrived on scene to find heavy black smoke coming out of the balcony sliding doors on the second floor, said Deputy Fire Chief Thomas Doherty.
A fire attack crew of three entered the home and put out the fire in the living room on the second floor before searching the rest of the house.
They found a dog in the back bedroom, removed it from the residence and deployed the pet oxygen system.
A vet was called to the scene to treat the animal and it was taken back to the clinic, however it was breathing on it’s own, Doherty said.
There were no other injuries and the investigation as to the cause of the fire is ongoing.
