WENATCHEE — A Wenatchee man and his dog are safe today after being trapped in a basement apartment that was on fire Friday afternoon.

Authories said Benjamin Arthur, 40, called RiverCom at 3:52 p.m. and reported he and his dog were inside in the basement at 322 Malaga Ave. He told dispatchers that the handle of his door was too hot to touch, so dispatchers advised him not to open the door.
