ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) -- Smoke detectors and a quick response by firefighters helped save the home of Dixie State College President Lee Caldwell.

The fire broke out Sunday morning in a basement laundry and utility room.

No one was home, but Caldwell's daughter-in-law stopped in to return a piece of furniture and heard smoke alarms blaring. She called 911.

Firefighters arrived within three minutes and quickly doused the flames. Damages were limited to the basement room.

Firefighters also rescued the family dog.

No one was injured. A cause is still under investigation.
