Sarnia firefighters rescued a family pet from a house fire Thursday.
Emergency crews arrived at a home on Wiltshire Drive and contained a "significant" fire in the kitchen.
All of the residents were out of the building at the time of the fire, but crews performed a search and rescue and found the family dog in the basement.
