PALERMO, Calif.-

Butte County CAL FIRE and the Butte County Fire Department extinguished a house fire in Palermo, saving a dog that was inside the building.

Saturday night around 5:45, firefighters say that they arrived on scene of a fire in a double wide mobile home on Irwin Ave. The first unit that arrived, Butte County Fire Engine Company 72, was able to knock down the fire.

At this point, firefighters were unsure if anyone was in the building and a medic unit responded to the scene. No people were found inside the house, but firefighters say they did rescue and resuscitate a dog who they say was uninjured but suffered from smoke inhalation.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.

We have beautiful weather around northern California right now, but it will get a lot more unsettled this weekend as a storm moves overhead. We can expect gusty wind, a big cooldown, and areas of light to moderate rain.
