A Jeannette man was attacked in his home by his pit bull today, police said.

Bruce Server, 55, was inside his house around 11:30 a.m. when his 5-year-old pit bull attacked him for several minutes, a Jeannette officer said.

Mr. Server's daughter was outside with another dog and rushed to his assistance, dousing the pit bull with hot water and coffee before separating the two.

Mr. Server was flown to a Pittsburgh-area hospital. The officer said the injuries were to both arms and not considered life threatening.

The dog was contained in the house until Jeannette Animal Control arrived.
