Bellingham Police officers rescued a man from a burning house early today.
Someone called 911 from a home on Ponderosa Court near BayviewCemetery at about 4 a.m. but the call was disconnected before the person could tell dispatchers what the emergency was.
Police officers responded and found the home on fire and saw a man inside.
They were able to get him out and then fight the fire with a garden hose until firefighters arrived.
They extinguished the fire and the man was transported to the hospital.
A dog was also rescued from the home.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
