WASHINGTON COUNTY — Two dogs died in a fire in the Township of Barton in Washington County Tuesday, July 3.

It happened around 4:30 p.m. at a home on Edelweiss Lane.

Sheriff’s officials said multiple fire departments responded.

The first arriving deputy observed smoke emanating from the soffits. The deputy entered the residence briefly to try and locate a family pet.

Firefighters were able to bring the fire under control, but the interior of the residence sustained extensive damage — estimated at $100,000.
