The first arriving crews noticed flames in the home’s attic. SAFD believes the fire started in the back corner of the house.

Fire officials said one person was inside the home when the fire started and managed to escape safely.

Several dogs were rescued from the home, and authorities are actively searching for others. One dog was revived and given back to the homeowner, SAFD said.

A neighboring home was slightly damaged by the flames, according to SAFD.

The house is not livable because it has extensive smoke damage and needs electrical repairs, fire officials said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
