Our condolences to Ashley Greene: The Twilight star's West Hollywood condo was destroyed in a fire this afternoon, and worst of all, the actress lost one of her two dogs in the blaze. Greene was reportedly "inconsolable" at the scene; and as a dog owner, my heart breaks for her. So sad: According to TMZ, "Ashley, her boyfriend and her brother were out late last night and were sleeping when the fire broke out on the living room sofa. They ran out of the apartment, and then realized the dogs were still there. The 2 men tried to get back in to rescue them but couldn't." Firefighters did somehow manage to save one of Greene's toy fox terriers; the other dog's body was wrapped in a sheet for Ashley to hold.
What a terrible experience! It's bad enough that Greene lost her home (I'm not talking about clothes and shoes here, I'm talking about photos and keepsakes and letters and other things of sentimental value), but to lose one of her beloved pets in the fire ... it's just devastating.
No word yet on how the fire started.
What words of sympathy would you send out to Ashley Greene right now?
