Firefighters rescue dog in early morning business fire

The dog was rescued, albeit unconscious, and was transported to a veterinarian.

ST. LOUIS — A business in St. Louis' College Hill neighborhood suffered significant fire damage early Friday morning.

Around 2 a.m., firefighters arrived at the 2000 block of East Grand in north St. Louis to respond to a fire at the 2021 Wireless building. Despite putting out the fire, the building was deemed a total loss. Officials believe the fire began in the back storage room and spread quickly.

Fire crews told 5 On Your Side that no one was inside except for a dog, named Sasha. She was rescued, albeit passed out, and was transported to a veterinarian. She is expected to recover.

On Thursday, firefighters responded to a fire in the 5600 block of Kennerly and rescued a kitten.
