Dog Rescued From A House Collapse Wreckage In Seattle

SEATTLE — A black lab was recovered on Thursday from a house in Seattle’s Magnolia district that had collapsed in a landslide last week.

The dog, who seemed attentive and wagged her tail when she saw her owner, was being examined by veterinarians on the scene. The dog’s condition was assessed as stable by Seattle Fire.

According to Seattle Fire, the owner reported hearing a dog inside the house, and crews on the site also heard a dog.
Neighbors said they’ve been listening every day since the avalanche in the hopes of hearing something, which they did on Thursday. In their investigation for the cause of the fire at 2400 Perkins Lane W, firefighters had to hack through walls and floors.

“We are exercising tremendous caution with our teams because it is not safe to enter the residence because of the landslide that occurred last week,” said Seattle Fire Department Public Information Officer David Cuerpo.


A landslide on Jan. 7 forced the house to partially collapse, trapping James Fritts inside as his wife Didi crawled to safety.

One of their dogs died in the collapse, according to James, while the other was missing but assumed dead at the time. The family stated they had been stopping by the residence in the hopes of hearing Sammy, the missing dog, but were not optimistic.

The pair spoke about surviving the tragedy earlier this week. Crews were spotted fortifying the structure and clearing debris on Thursday as they attempted to look inside.
