Firefighters rescue dog from Williston condo fire

The Williston Fire Department extinguished a fire in a Cedar Lane condominium Saturday morning after a neighbor called 911 reporting smoke coming out of a second-story window.
No one was in the house at the time of the fire, but firefighters rescued a 15-year-old black Labrador retriever from the smoke-filled home.
The dog was treated for smoke inhalation, transported to a local veterinary clinic and is expected to make a full recovery, the Williston Fire Department reported.

The department called for mutual aid from fire departments in South Burlington, Burlington, Richmond, Essex Junction and Essex Town. The Williston Police Department also responded.

The Williston Fire Department does not consider the fire suspicious. It is believed to be electrical.
