FOREST LAKE, Minn. — The Forest Lake Fire Department says they responded to a house fire in the 2000 block of Goodvine Trail N. on Saturday evening.
The fire department says that while the family was away during the time of the fire, their three dogs were rescued but one of them has since died.
The condition of the other two dogs is unknown but they were taken to a veterinarian.
Firefighters initially arrived to a home fully engulfed in flames, and were unable to enter the house because it was unstable.
Forest Lake Fire Chief Alan Newman says they were able to determine the fire started in the garage of the home and spread to the attic.
A cause for the fire has not yet been identified.
