Dog dies, home badly damaged in Milton-Freewater fire


MILTON-FREEWATER -- Authorities today are investigating a fire that damaged a home Friday.

City Fire Chief Shane Garner said the fire in the two-bedroom structure at 119 Orchard Ave was reported at 3:15 p.m. No one was at home at the time, but a pet dog in the house died in the blaze, he said.

The fire apparently started in the rear of the structure, but the cause remained under investigation today. More than 50 percent of the structure was damaged by the fire, Garner said.
