5 people, 2 dogs rescued from burning home in Ashwaubenon

ASHWAUBENON, Wis. (AP) -- Firefighters rescued five people and a dog from a burning house in Ashwaubenon.

Passers-by reported the blaze Tuesday morning. A public safety officer who responded kicked down the door to check for people inside but was turned back by heavy smoke.

Better-equipped firefighters rescued the people and dogs from the home's basement. Some of the people were pulled through a basement window. None required treatment at a hospital.

The cause of the fire wasn't immediately determined.
