Officials Believe Dog Started Virginia Beach Fire

Posted: Updated:

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - A dog is being blamed for starting a fire that heavily damaged a Virginia Beach home.
    
City fire spokesman Tim Riley says officials believe the Rottweiler's paw hit a knob as the dog was going after food stored above a gas stove.
    
Media outlets report the stove ignited the kitchen cabinets in the one-story home.
    
No one was home at the time. A neighbor rescued the dog before firefighters arrived.
