Sad update: The dog perished in the fire.

It is just devastating. An Amherst man was killed in a fire at a home on Bramblewood Lane shortly after 1 a.m. Saturday. A woman was hospitalized at Erie County Medical Center with burns and smoke inhalation, and put into a medically induced coma, according Amherst Fire Officials.  Her condition is not known at this time.  The  names of the victims have not been released.

Late Saturday evening, a Facebook post was made in hopes of finding the dog who lived in the home. Sheeba is an 8-year-old great dane. She’s been missing since the fire.

I spoke with Kathleen at 9 pm Saturday evening. She tells me they know the chances are remote, but they are holding out hope that Sheeba might have gotten out of the house somehow and is still alive.  They’ve been driving around the neighborhood looking for her.

If you have any information, you’re asked to contact Kathleen Kennedy on Facebook. 

Here is the post.
