A dog was saved from an apartment fire in the Orangewood section of Levittown early Sunday morning, December 17, 2017.  As  firefighters arrived , they found heavy smoke  and fire coming from a first floor apartment.  A resident tried to get back into an  apartment  on the second floor to save their dog. They were barred by authorities . After determining where the dog might be, firefighters were able to run into the apartment and save the animal.

A cause of the blaze has not been determined by the Fire marshal at this time.  No injuries were reported.  Companies remained on scene for several hours after the fire, assisting in the investigation, and making sure nothing was going to flare up again.  Some residents were displaced.   Two men are credited with knocking on doors alerting residents to the fire.
