HANOVER COUNTY, Va. -- A Hanover woman suffered smoke inhalation after she escaped a Friday morning house fire. The woman, whose injuries were considered non-life threatening, was able to rescue her dog on her way out of the Drinkard Way home in Mechanicsville.

"An aggressive interior fire attack and search for any additional occupants were quickly completed. No other injuries were reported."

A cause of the fire remains under investigation.
