K-9 officer, firefighters rescue 2 dogs from Caledonia, Wis., blaze

Home, restaurant destroyed in explosion

RACINE, Wis. (AP) — A Wisconsin police officer says he did what any dog lover would do when a pet is in a burning home: He rescued the pup.
Caledonia K-9 Officer Cory Radke and his canine partner, Lou, were on their way home Monday when Radke saw smoke and heard a dispatcher calling all squad cars to the fire.
Radke was first to arrive at the house, according to WITI-TV. He kicked in a side door, found a dog named Deezel on the couch and spirited the dog outside.
Meanwhile, firefighters found another dog, Fido, cowering under a bed and rescued him as well.
Nobody was injured in the blaze, according to the Caledonia Fire Department.
