Dog rescued in Cobb apartment fire

A puppy was rescued from a Cobb fire Sunday that will displace the residents of five apartments.

The fire, at the Ashbrooke Crossing apartments on Tibarron Parkway in Smyrna, was called in around 10:15 a.m.

No one was injured in the blaze, said Denell Boyd, the public information officer for Cobb County Fire and Emergency Services. But fire damage to three apartments and water damage in two more means the residents will be aided by Red Cross and not be able to stay in their homes.

Boyd said the fire may have been started by a grill. A resident called the fire in.

“It was pretty bad,” Boyd said. “Any time you get on the scene and flames are showing, you know it’s a pretty big fire.”

The dog was rescued after the fire was under control, Boyd said.
