Tampa, Florida-- Tampa Fire Rescue Units responded to a report of a house fire in the area of 1818 East 15th Ave around 2:30 p.m.
Engine crews rolled up on flames showing, and quickly conducted the primary and secondary searches, and extinguished the fire.
Neighbors called 911 and reported the fire, and quickly ran to the neighbor's home to pound on the door to alert them of the fire.
According to Tampa Fire Rescue, two males were within the home, along with one dog, and all escaped without injury.
This home was equipped with smoke detectors and they did alert the residents, right after the neighbor warned them of the danger.

The owners of the dogs were reported to be at work during the fire, and no injuries were reported at this residence.
The fire remains under investigation.
These men and dog lives were saved because of neighborly assistance, and smoke detectors that alerted them. The smoke detectors were present on each level (1st story, 2nd story).
Tampa Fire Rescue would like to remind everyone of the importance of checking your smoke detectors at least every month, and changing the batteries when you change your clocks.
