A pug dog was rescued Monday afternoon from a fire that destroyed a Hialeah home.
The fire started at a house near the corner of West 14th Avenue and West 38th Street.
Firefighters said nobody was home at the time of the fire, but the family's pets were inside.
Although firefighters were able to save the pooch, a parakeet wasn't as lucky.
Electricity was shut off to eight homes in the neighborhood because of the fire.
