Dog rescued from burning home
A dog survived a Friday night home fire, after a Cocke County firefighter rescued it from a hole in the floor of the burning home. Firefighter Jordan Self said his agency responded to the Bill Phillips mobile home on Highway 160 at 10:28 pm, finding the home 75 percent involved and being fought by personnel from the Centerview Volunteer Fire Department. "After we arrived, Firefighter Justin Shelton heard the dog inside the home, barking and whining. He crawled under the home and saw one of the dog's legs sticking through a hole in the floor. He made the hole larger and was able to pull the dog through the hole to safety," Self said. "He had smoke on him but he is OK. Jordan got to him just in time because the fire was moving through the home toward him." Phillips said he and his father were seated on the porch of the home before they went to bed, when they detected a strange odor, but they were unable to determine the source. After they went to bed, the homeowner said he smelled smoke and then heard a loud explosion. The two occupants were able to escape the home without injury. Philips said he attempted to fight the fire with an exterior water hose but was unable to control the flames. Firefighters were able to protect two adjacent buildings from the fire. The value of the destroyed home has not been determined.
