No injuries were reported from a house fire that started around 6:30 p.m. Thursday in the 600 block of West Garden City Avenue.
The house, owned by Haydee Rodriguez, sustained significant damage to both the structure and the contents that were inside the house.
Seven people lived at the house, 623 W. Garden City Ave., but no one was home at the time of the fire, according to Garden City fire chief Allen Shelton.
The fire was extinguished shortly before 8 p.m., Shelton said. Fire personnel were still looking for two family dogs as of 8 p.m. Thursday who Shelton believes were inside the home.
Shelton said the fire appears to have started in the back of the house but had not determined an exact location. The fire spread to the attic by the time firefighters arrived on scene.
Shelton said he did not have the exact time of when firefighters arrived, but believed it was about 6:30 p.m. The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, Shelton said.
In the back of the home, the fire progressed enough to snap a live electrical wire in two, causing officials to cordon off the area where the wire was located until the electricity was turned off.
The electricity, gas and water at the home were turned off at the request of firefighters.
Shelton said the fire is still under investigation. More information likely will be available Friday morning.
