KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Firefighters managed to knock out flames quickly at a home along Valley Grove Road in Rutledge Monday morning.
The call came in just before 10 a.m. and fire crews say flames were out in about five minutes once they arrived.
Fire crews tell WSAZ.com a dog was saved but three cats did not make it out of the home.
A family of four lives inside the home but no one was inside at the time of the fire.
