BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A total of five dogs and three cats are unaccounted for after a fire ripped through a home on Norwalk Avenue.

The fire started around 7am and crews responded after getting calls from neighbors and the one person in the home at the time. The one person in the home got out safely, but the five dogs and at least three cats are still unaccounted for. Firefighters say that the home was packed with furniture which made it difficult to get inside. There were also issues with the hydrants, as they needed to use water from more than half a mile away.

The Red Cross said they are assisting two people displaced by the fire. The cause of the fire is still unknown.

This is a developing story.
