SANTA ROSA (CBS SF) — A fire killed a dog and destroyed a garage at a residence in east Santa Rosa early Wednesday morning, fire officials said.
The occupants had evacuated the single-story home at 2037 Mission Blvd. and were staying elsewhere because of PG&E’s Public Safety Power Shutoff in the neighborhood, Santa Rosa Fire Battalion Chief Matt Gloeckner said. A deceased dog was found in the garage.
