This is a human interest story. Yet the text is emotionless. There were two dogs in the house and firemen saved the puppy. What happened to the other dog? The residents were "displaced?" Wrong words. Where are the quotes? They lost their home and likely some cherished possessions. They probably were despondent. This is rookie journalism. You can do better.
