Firefighters rescue two dogs and rabbit from Cedarhurst Lane house fire

Milford firefighters rescued two dogs and a rabbit from a home on Cedarhurst Lane Saturday, Aug. 2 after fire broke out there at about 6 p.m.

The Milford Fire Department received several 911 calls Saturday just before 6 p.m. reporting a structure fire in the area of 232 Cedarhurst Lane.

Firefighters arriving at the scene found 208 Cedarhurst Lane heavily on fire on the second floor, said Fire Department Spokesman Greg Carman.

Multiple hose lines were used to contain and extinguish the fire while additional crews were able to rescue the two dogs and a rabbit from the home.

“One firefighter was evaluated for heat related problems and no other injuries were reported,” Carman said.

No one was home at the time of the fire and the Milford Fire Marshal’s office is investigating the cause.
