ARLINGTON — We have heartbreaking news to share about the dog Arlington firefighters saved from a fire on Sunday morning.

Leah the Border Collie has died.

Leah was rescued from a burning residence in the 2200 block of Wyrick Court, and firefighters using oxygen tanks worked for an hour to revive her.

Hopes were high after the pet was taken to a vet for recuperation, but Leah took a turn for the worse and was unable to recover.

A cat that was in the same house also perished in the fire.
