Fire damages duplex, kills family’s dog

By Paul Minnis, The Republic

A fire that investigators believe began in a utility room Saturday severely damaged a duplex and killed the family’s pit bull. City firefighters were called about 5 p.m. to 902 Short Wilson St., where flames rose and smoke billowed from the roofline.
Resident Justin Irwin and fellow adults Kristen Brown and Christopher Reed escaped with three children, ages 3, 1 and infant, according to Matt Noblitt, public information officer for Columbus Fire Department.
