Dog rescued in Sunday night apartment fire

ENID, Okla. — Officials said a New Year's Eve fire damaged an apartment and left a dog displaced. 

Enid Fire Department responded to a call about 7 p.m. Sunday night to Adams Court Apartments, 325 W. Oklahoma, according to Fire Marshal Ken Helms

There was no one home at the time of the fire, the cause of which still is being investigated, Helms said. Firefighters found the blaze in the apartment's living room, primarily on a sofa. 

The fire had pretty much burned itself out by the time firefighters arrived, Helms said. The fire blacked up the apartment "pretty bad" from the smoke, and significant damage was done to the apartment, but no other apartments were damaged, and no other residents were required to vacate. 

However, upon entering the apartment, firefighters found and rescued a dog in a bedroom and were concerned for its health, but Helms reported the dog survived and recovered. A neighbor took possession of the dog.

Helms said the fire department still is trying to locate the apartment's occupant.

According to a report, 15 firefighters and eight units responded to the fire, and the blaze caused an estimated $23,000 in damage to the property, valued at $400,000.
