FREMONT (CBS SF) – A two-alarm fire destroyed a home in Fremont Friday morning, a fire captain said.

The blaze was reported at 7:04 a.m. at a single-family home at 43106 Continental Drive.

Firefighters arrived to find the house in flames that were also spreading to adjacent residences, fire Capt. Don Linneman said.

The two adults and five children living at the home made it out safe, as did three of the family’s dogs. However, a fourth dog is unaccounted for, Linneman said.

The fire has since been extinguished but “the home is pretty much a total loss,” Linneman said.

He said the homes on the left and right of 43106 Continental Drive were also damaged, as was a fence and shed to the rear of the home.

The cause of the fire remained under investigation, Linneman said.
