Superior firefighters extinguished a structure fire Friday night and revived a dog rescued from the burning building.
The Superior Fire Department reported crews were called to the fire in the basement at 1311 N. 23rd St., at 9:19 p.m. Friday. Firefighters found an active fire in the basement and quickly extinguished the flames.
Crews found an unconscious dog in the basement. They brought the dog, an about 4-month-old beagle named Rush, out of the building and administered oxygen to the animal. The dog regained consciousness and was taken by Superior police to a Duluth veterinary clinic. Battalion Chief Vern Johnson indicated in an email sent out Saturday that the pup was doing well but would remain under veterinary care through Sunday.
No one was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported. Damage was estimated at $20,000 and the fire remains under investigation.
