CHARLOTTE HARBOR, Fla. — Charlotte County firefighters who arrived in four firetrucks had little trouble putting out a fire in an apartment at the Charleston Cay complex off Harborview Road Saturday.

However it took three of the firefighters to subdue a tiny Yorkshire terrier as it was being placed into a dog carrier for safe keeping. The dog was one of four temporarily displaced by the fire.

A firefighter that knew his knots would have been able to fashion a lease and not had to wait for animal control. Lets the main job of a firefighter to happen that much faster.
