Dog killed in Cape Girardeau fire
A dog died from a mobile home fire in Cape Girardeau on Saturday.
Firefighters responded to a call at 10:02 a.m. at 3020 Boutin Drive, Lot 34. The occupant of the home, Richard Gilmore, was not present at the time. A small dog was inside and apparently died from smoke inhalation.
According to firefighters, the fire began in the corner of the living room near or in a recliner. The fire then spread to the kitchen, hallway and bedroom.
The trailer was damaged beyond repair, said Capt. Vicki Moldenhauer.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Gilmore reported leaving home at 8 a.m. and did not notice anything unusual.
