September 26, 1997|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

A two-alarm fire destroyed a Canton rowhouse yesterday evening and damaged a neighboring residence, a fire official said.

Shift Cmdr. Donald Heinbuch said four dogs died in the fire that began on the first floor of 2910 Hudson St. and was reported at 6: 31 p.m.

Heinbuch said the fire destroyed the three-story residence and killed a pit bull terrier owned by the occupants, Edward Stanton and his son, Edward Jr., who were not at home. A second dog was rescued by Carl Collins, a neighbor.

Smoke from the fire entered 2908 and killed three of four dogs owned by James and Jean Clark, who also were not home at the time, Heinbuch said.

He said firefighters using an oxygen mask revived the Clarks' male Yorkshire terrier, but that its mate and their two puppies died.

Clutching the dog that survived, Jean Clark described the pets as "our children."
