Paramedics treat dog in house fire emergency

UPDATE 4.10PM: PARAMEDICS gave a dog oxygen after it was first reported missing during a Cooran house fire.

Seven Queensland Fire and Emergency Service crews remain at the Coles Creek property where blaze broke out about 3pm.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokesman said two women in their 20s were on scene, but did not require paramedics' assistance.

They remain on standby as firefighters in breathing apparatus investigate the roof area to ensure the fire is completely out.

A QFES spokeswoman said upon arrival, smoke was billowing from the rear of the property and initial reports suggest the fire broke out in the laundry.

She said paramedics had treated the dog.
