CHARLOTTE – Firefighters spent Friday morning battling a fire that broke out at a home near Southpark.

No one was home at the time, but a dog was trapped inside. He was later rescued.

 Neighbors are thanking a woman who saw the fire on Sharon View Road on the way to work. She knocked on neighbor’s doors, telling them to get out of the house.

 When firefighters arrived, flames were shooting out of the roof of the house.

 The dog, which was trapped in a screened in porch in the home, suffered burns but was taken to the vet for medical attention. A neighbor had to call the homeowner, who wasn’t home at the time, to relay the bad news.

 Fire officials say it’s too early to determine the cause of the fire.
