Oskaloosa, Iowa – The Oskaloosa Fire Department was called to the 1000 block of 1st Avenue West on Saturday afternoon around 4:48 pm.

Animal control was notified, and Oskaloosa Police officers helped the dog get outside and to safety. Mahaska Health Partnership Emergency Services paramedics gave the dog water until animal control arrived.

No one was hurt as a result of the fire, and no cause of the fire has been released. There are no damage estimates at this time. We will update this story when one becomes available.
