East Pierce firefighters rescued a dog and two salamanders from a burning mobile home in Bonney Lake on Friday.
The blaze was reported about 5:15 p.m. in the 9600 block of 210th Avenue East.
Crews arrived to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the porch of a double-wide trailer. One dog was trapped inside, and two other dogs were outside in the care of neighbors.
The residents were not home.
Firefighters from Orting and Central Pierce assisted and managed to contain the fire within a half hour.
No one was injured.
The Red Cross is helping the homeowners temporarily relocate, because the mobile home is likely a total loss due to smoke damage.
The fire’s cause has not been determined.
