Crains Creek Fire Department posted a public service announcement on its Facebook page after they responded to a fire in Cameron on Monday morning.
When firefighters arrived on the scene, flames and smoke were showing from the home.
Crains Creek Fire Department said they vented the side gable for the smoke and heat to escape the home to help them put the fire out.
“The family dog was found alive in the bedroom on the bed with the door closed,” said Crains Creek Fire Department about the importance of closed doors in fires.
The department commended the work by all firefighters on the scene which included units with Cypress Pointe, Spout Springs, Fort Bragg, Benhaven, and the Harnett County Fire Marshal.
