SUMMIT TOWNSHIP — After being in a burning house for over an hour, the home’s owner’s dog was found alive with no signs of trauma Wednesday during a fire near the Lake Michigan shoreline.

Riverton Township Fire Chief Joe Cooper said the dog was located on the main floor of the Patrick Karp residence, 4725 S. Lakeshore Drive, after the house had been fully engulfed in flames for over an hour.

“She was in a bedroom on the main floor,” Cooper said. “She started barking so we sent firefighters in to retrieve her.” After the dog came out of the house it started playing with its owner. Cooper said the dog did not appear to suffer any signs of trauma, including smoke inhalation.
