Woman, Pets, Escape Early Morning House Fire

  A Shreveport home has heavy damage from an early morning fire, but the woman who lived there, along with her two dogs, managed to make a safe escape.
  Firefighters say the 66 year old resident told them she called 911 around 1 a. m. Monday after realizing her home was on fire.  She told them she was awakened by a noise coming from the front of the home as well barking from her dogs.
   Firefighters arrived the residence, in the 1800 block of Perrin Street, a few minutes later and had the flames knocked down in about 15 minutes, they said.
  One firefighter heard dogs barking as he was doing a final check of the home.  He told KSLA News 12 he found the two dogs in carriers behind the home.  While the animals were not in any immediate fire danger, they were in the vicinity of a lot of smoke, firefighters said.
   A live power line that had fallen down in front of the home also threatened firefighters for a while.  However, no one was hurt.
  The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
