Fire crews said the pets were scared and didn’t want to be touched, which made rescuing them difficult. It took about 15 minutes to get the 12 pets out of the house, which are safe and weren’t injured, crews said.

The fire is believed to have started in a wall or on a deck. 

The American Red Cross is assisting the family. The home sustained an estimated $30,000 to $40,000 in damages.

No one was injured.

The residents and firefighters battling the blaze were also not injured. Crews initially reported possible injuries after a man was found on the porch of the home when emergency units first arrived. Those reports were later deemed unfounded, according to investigators. 

The cause of the fire is unknown and still under investigation, fire officials said.
