Dog dies in fire in eastern Lawrence mobile home park – The Lawrence Times

Science & Technology

Some Lawrence residents are devastated after losing their pet dog in a fire in an eastern Lawrence mobile home park, according to a neighbor.
Three homes were also damaged by the fire that started around 11:15 p.m. Thursday at Brookwood, 1908 E. 19th St. The neighbor said early Friday that least one home and shed were completely destroyed; one home next to it was also badly damaged, and the one on the opposite side lost its porch and its siding was damaged.
Scanner traffic indicated that no people were physically injured. Other pets were saved from the home where the fire started, but one dog could not be rescued, the neighbor said.
The fire was near a main gas line, so the gas was shut off and nearby neighbors were evacuated for their safety.
