BYRON, Minn. Two dogs died and a man in a wheelchair was saved in a home fire that left $100,000 in damage Sunday night.
The fire was reported at 10:47 p.m. Sunday at 319 60th Ave NW. when the renters came home and saw smoke and felt the heat when they opened the door.
The male, who is in a wheelchair, got stuck in the doorway before his girlfriend was able to pull him to safety, authorities said.
Two dogs, both miniature schnauzers, were killed.
Officials believe the fire started in a northeast bedroom.
