Yeah, the back of the structure was going pretty good when we arrived on scene. The dad of the house was inside trying to find one of the dogs and the PD was here trying to get him out. Luckily everyone else was out of the structure; just trying to get everybody out.Robert bard, chief, Lakemont Fire Department
