A dog has died and another had to be revived by firefighters at a building fire in Halifax this morning (Tuesday).

They were initially told that a car was on fire, but on arrival they found that the first floor of the building was on fire.

Firefighters used six breathing apparatus and three hose reels to fight the fire, which caused severe damage to the end corner of the first floor and dropped down to the ground floor starting another fire.

One dog was found dead on the first floor and another had to be revived with oxygen.
