Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW) - Emergency crews were called to the scene of a house fire on East Eagle Street on Buffalo's eastside around 3 a.m, Thursday.

All occupants got out of the home before emergency crews arrived. Fire fighters did have to go into the house to save four dogs that were trapped.

The fire started on the first floor but quickly spread through the house and to the home next door. When crews got the animals out they were taken away in stretchers and examine. They all survived but there is no word if there were other animals in the home.

Fire Chief Don McFeely said was a challenge to put out the flames but luckily no one was injured.

"We're just putting out the home at 774 East Eagle. Everyone is out and the dogs seem to be revived and so far no injuries," McFeely said.

Emergency crews said the occupants attempted to put the fire out with a garden hose but the flames spread too quickly.

The home where the fire originated will be demolished. The total damage for both houses is about $100,000. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
