    SOUTH BURLINGTON — Vermont police say a bus driver for a day care for dogs suffered burns while trying to save canines trapped after the vehicle caught on fire.

    The driver rescued one dog, but another died.

    Police say a 911 call was made Tuesday afternoon reporting a small bus on fire in a South Burlington parking lot.

    Police say the driver of the Gulliver’s Doggie Daycare bus saved one dog before the vehicle was consumed by flames. Authorities say the animals were scared and resisted the driver’s attempts to help them.

    Police say the driver, John Thamann, of Jericho, suffered burns to his hands, head and back. The first responding officer suffered smoke inhalation while trying to enter the bus.

    The blaze’s cause appeared to be vehicle mechanical failure.
