A family of three is safe but displaced after its Henderson home caught fire Saturday morning.
One of the family’s three dogs did not survive. Firefighters were able to rescue other pets, including turtles and a bird, Henderson Fire Battalion Chief Tim Hartman said.
Damage is estimated at $100,000 after the accidental blaze, likely the result of electrical failure, started in the garage, according to fire officials. The fire spread to a second-story bedroom in the home on Shamrock Drive, at the intersection of Greenway Road and Horizon Drive.
The two adults and one teenager were outside of the house when fire crews arrived just after 11 a.m.
