Family Dog Killed In Vacaville Fire

VACAVILLE (KCBS) – A two-alarm fire in Vacaville Monday night quickly spread to two homes, killing a family dog although no residents were injured.

The fire started in the 200 block of Ironwood Street around 8:25 p.m. according to Vallejo Fire Department Battalion Chief Jeff Ryder.

“It started as a fire between two houses and then extended mainly into one house,” said Ryder. “It extended into the eaves of the second house but never got inside of the second house.”

Fire crews were able to get a handle on the flames within an hour.

“It burned up the garage of the house. The main part of the house really didn’t have any fire damage per se, a little bit in the attic space above the living area,” said Ryder.

No one was injured in the fire but a family dog was trapped inside the burning house and didn’t make it out, dying in the blaze.

Investigators said the cause of the fire appears to be accidental, although investigations are ongoing.
