Racine apartment fire, lost puppy sought

A group that searches for lost pets is asking for your help to find a puppy missing after a devastating apartment fire in Racine Friday night, Feb. 25.

The fire happened at a 16-unit apartment building on Anthony Lane in Racine around 10:45 p.m. Five firefighters were hurt, suffering minor slip/trip injuries due to icy conditions. At one point while fighting the fire, crews had to evacuate because a hole was found in the floor of a unit on the first level.

The group Billy's Posse, Inc. Lost Dog Search and Recovery reports a few animals died in the fire, and Luna apparently got out.



Four-month-old Luna was last seen on Saturday morning around 9 a.m. in the Anthony Lane neighborhood, but there have been no sightings since.

Anyone with information is asked to reach out to Billy's Posse at 262-833-7480.
