A house fire early Friday morning in the Venable neighborhood. It happened just before 3:30 a.m. and heavily damaged the house at 509 12th St. NW (pictured). City Fire Chief Charles Werner says a woman and her dog escaped without injury. A neighbor tried to make entry and was slightly injured. That person was treated and released by the Charlottesville Albemarle Rescue Squad. The Red Cross is helping the displaced resident. Chief Werner says the smoke alarms were sounding and the resident said she heard them and was able to get out. Werner says the ones in that house had been installed and checked each year under the fire department’s free smoke alarm program. (Photo from Chief Charles Werner)
