FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – The Fort Wayne Fire Department is investigating a house fire that left two dogs dead on Fort Wayne’s north side.

Crews were called to the house at 8214 Westridge Rd. around 4 p.m. Sunday.

According to a release from FWFD, smoke from the fire was noticeable in the sky from miles away. When crews arrived, flames were seen coming out from the back of the house.

The homeowners made it out safely after their smoke alarms alerted them to the fire and were on the front lawn when fire crews arrived. The homeowners had 4 dogs with them outside and told firefighters that two dogs were still inside the home. Attempts to resuscitate the two were unsuccessful and they ultimately died from smoke inhalation.

The fire was under control after 15 minutes.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
