Updates provided to 911 during the response indicated a significant fire in a large residence, which prompted a 2nd alarm.

Upon arrival of Engine 7502 from the Monument Dr Station, flames were rolling out the front of the single-story portion of the structure, and the occupants were attempting to fight the flames with garden hoses.

They were able to confirm all occupants had safely exited the residence, including several children. No human injuries were reported.

At one point, up to 4 dogs were also safely out, but one dog reentered the structure and was unaccounted for.

During the fire attack, a firefighter was able to locate the dog and carry it to the outside. It suffered from mild smoke inhalation and some singed fur, but was doing OK.

RM is working with the occupants to arrange Red Cross assistance. Cause of the fire is under investigation.
