An early morning house fire has claimed the life of two family pets.
Firefighters responded to a home in the 600 block of Delord Street around 1 a.m.
The two people living in the home escaped after the smoke and popping noises woke them up. They were not injured.
Two dogs, however, were killed in the fire.
Investigators say they believe the fire began in the kitchen. The home was heavily damaged. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
