A Maywood house fire that broke out early Sunday morning did not result in any human injuries, but at least two pets died in the fire, according to Maywood Police Chief Craig Bronaugh.

Bronaugh said that the fire broke out in the basement of a home on the 1600 block of South 7th Ave. in Maywood, just after 8 a.m. on March 17.

“There were no civilian injuries,” he said, “but at least two pet dogs died in the fire, which was contained to its area of origin.”

Bronaugh said that a family of three was displaced as a result of the fire. The two dogs, he added, died of smoke inhalation.

The owners said that a third dog had been missing shortly after firefighters arrived, the chief said. The condition of that pet has not yet been confirmed.

Bronaugh said that the fire department is still investigating the cause of the fire. VFP
