KILMARNOCK—A house at 15860 Mary Ball Road in Kilmarnock is believed to be a total loss following a fire Saturday night that stretched into the early morning hours of Sunday.
At approximately 9:25 p.m. on August 19, a call came into Lancaster dispatch reporting a house fire that was fully involved.
At the time of the fire, no one was in the home, the residence of Amir Rasoul, said chief Roy Hall.
During a routine search throughout the house, a firefighter found and saved a young pit bull, he said. The Kilmarnock-Lancaster Rescue Squad gave the dog oxygen then the dog was taken to the Lancaster Animal Shelter and is “good to go,” he said.
The house is a total loss and has been condemned, according to Hall. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
