DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton fire engines arrived to large flames at the 16 hundred block of Tuttle Avenue.
No one was inside the home at the time of the fire, but two pets were inside.
Unfortunately both dogs did not make it through.
Officials say the heavy smoke and toxins released most likely caused their death.
Preliminary inspection also show that there’s been extensive fire damage inside the one-story building.

Estimated damage to the home is at least $35,000.
