Firefighters battled a Clovis house fire Thursday afternoon near the neighborhood of Tarpey Village.
A single story home in the 1100 block of Saginaw Ave. caught fire just before 4 p.m., says Clovis Fire Chief John Binaski.
He says residents weren’t home at the time the fire started and a neighbor called 911. Upon arrival, firefighters confirmed no one was inside the home, but two pets died from fire-related injuries, Binaski confirms.
The fire chief says the home has significant damage and the cause is unknown.
The family has a GoFundMe account set up for those who would like to help.
