VIDEO: "The citizen who stopped and alerted the first-floor resident of the fire is a hero," Fond du Lac Fire Chief Peter O'Leary said after a fire on 7th Street Thursday afternoon. The fire department reports the citizen was a passing motorist who saw the fire, stopped, and banged on the door of the home, waking the person inside. When firefighters arrived, flames were coming out of two second-floor windows of the two-level duplex. Fortunately, no one was on the second floor. The fire department says a dog in the house died despite efforts to revive it with oxygen and CPR. Chief O'Leary says a pet cat survived; the cat was unaccounted for earlier. The house is uninhabitable.
