However, Green's boyfriend and brother were all able to escape after the blaze started on the sofa. The 26-year-old "Twilight" actress was seen sobbing, cradling the unfortunate dog, who didn't make it out of the fire.
"We were dispatched at 9:50 a.m," contactmusic.com quoted inspector Quvondo Johnson of the Los Angeles county fire department as saying.
"We did see smoke and fire from the third floor when we arrived. Based on the load of the building, we quickly raised it to a two alarm fire," he added.
Several residents tried to tackle the blaze with fire extinguishers before at least 10 fire trucks hurtled to the building. The fire was quickly brought under control and extinguished just after 10 a.m. following a 9:50 a.m. emergency call.
"It was completely burnt out. All the windows were blown out with smoke billowing out of them. All of the building had been evacuated. The residents looked scared and angry," said a source.
