Denton's New Fire Recruit Has 4 Legs and a Tail

The Denton Fire Department has a new recruit — a 21-month-old black Lab named Sherlock.

Sherlock is taking over for former DFD arson dog Baltic, who retired in December.

Both dogs live with investigator Brian Gilmore. They are trained to sniff out accelerants that may have been used to start a fire.
