    I hope everyone got outside safely. Sad situation. Hopefully the residents have insurance and friends and family that can help. If not,let us know how we can help!

    Clearly some need English lessons, apparently does not mean definitely and just because it’s a derelict house does not mean that no one was in it. It is just fortunate that no one was. Lets remember there are homeless people that could have been looking for shelter. The article states “The residence, which appears to be preparing for renovations, sustained minor structural damage with extensive heat and smoke damage throughout.” therefore if going by the article the derelict house belongs to someone and hopefully they are insured.

    I wonder if it was a legal, licensed dog; or an illegal dog being hidden…..

      The dog is legal and licensed. I walked this dog past the police officers last night to take to a secure location 3 houses away. If you wish you can come see for yourself. Yes im being defensive cause Im tired of negative minded people and their talk.

      • Really??? says:

        Im glad to hear it! Just hear too many stories about people hiding out illegal dogs. Glad he is ok!

    Here we have another example of: “would’a could’a and should’a” It’s time for the Govt. / and them that live on that side of the bridge to establish a volunteer fire fighters service to protect the historical Town of St. George and surrounding properties!
