WATERVILLE, Maine — Two people ran into a burning home to rescue their neighbor's dog Saturday afternoon while other residents used garden hoses to keep the fire from spreading throughout the two-story house.

Randy LaPointe heard people screaming for help and ran to the home, finding other neighbors banging on windows and doors and dousing flames that were engulfing an enclosed porch in the rear of the house.
