Firefighters save all four pets and the home

The Minot Fire Department says an unattended candle is responsible for a house fire in southwest Minot.

Firefighters responded to a reported house fire at 315 16th ST SW Monday morning. Upon arrival, crews found smoke coming from the basement of the home. Within minutes the Minot Fire Department was able to access the single room quickly to control the blaze.

Homeowners reported three cats and one dog were missing while firefighters were on the scene. They found all four house pets and residents unharmed.

Minot Fire Department determined an unattended candle was the source of the fire and says in the U.S. 36% of all candle fires are due to leaving it unattended.

Three engines and one command vehicle were dispatched to the home. The first engine was on scene within three minutes of the call.
