By  | 

On Wednesday afternoon, the Bryan Fire Department dispatched fire units to a house fire at a residence in the 700 block of Eagle Pass.

When firefighters arrived on the scene, smoke could be seen coming from the second level of the home. No one was inside the house at the time of the fire except two pets. Firefighters were able to rescue a dog, and it's believed a cat was able make it out on its own.

Neighbors who live behind the house happened to be outside on their deck when they say one heard what sounded like a car door slam. Andy Burda says he quickly told his wife that the noise didn't sound like a car door. Moments later, the couple noticed smoke coming for the roof and the back end of the house.

The fire department was able enter the home and get the situation under control. They believe the fire started on the second floor. Fire inspectors are investigating what caused the fire.
