A late afternoon fire at the Garfield Road home of Dean and Leann Fain claimed the life of the family's dog, although firefighters were able to save the family's cat. The Springfield Township Fire Department was assisted by East Palestine Fire Department and a crew from North Beaver VFD in Pennsylvania. Springfield Township Fire Chief Matt Gebhardt said no one was home at the time of the fire. In the photo, East Palestine firefighter Dawn Carsey kneels on the street administering oxygen to the cat. The cat was transported to the Darlington, Pa., Veterinary Clinic.
