Neighbor saves dogs blamed for starting house fire

JOYCE, Wash. (AP) - A couple in the Olympic Peninsula community of Joyce, Wash., say a neighbor helped save their home and their pets from a fire this week.

James Krieger says it's possible his dogs started the fire.

He and his wife, Sarah, left their home in an RV park Monday night to do some errands, leaving their two dogs inside.

The Peninsula Daily News reports that neighbor Evan Angenendt often dog-sits for the couple. He heard the noise from a fire alarm, entered the house and found flames shooting up from the stove.

Krieger says his dogs get rough when they wrestle. He says they must have hit the propane switch.
