ANTIOCH (CBS SF) — A family’s pet dog has died and their home destroyed in an early Friday morning fire that roared through both floors of the two-story house, authorities said.

According to the Contra Costa County Fire Protection District, the blaze produced a large column of smoke and when crews arrived
about 7:15 a.m. at the home in the 2300 block of Shelbourne Way, flames were billowing from both floors of the house.

The fire was brought under control a short time later, but the structure sustained extensive damage.

An unknown number of residents who lived at the home were able to get out safely, but a dog died in the blaze. No other injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire was under investigation, a Confire spokeswoman said.
