Two residents and three of their pets escaped a house fire Friday morning in Huntington Beach.
Just before 9 a.m., the Fire Department received a call about a bedroom fire in the 6100 block of Medford Drive. Responders put out the fire, which had spread to the hallway, at 9:08 a.m., Deputy Fire Marshal Jeff Lopez said.
A middle-aged woman and a girl were treated at the scene and transported to a local hospital. Two dogs and a cat were also rescued and put in the hands of animal control. A third dog was found dead in the home during the investigation, Lopez said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, and the preliminary damage estimates are $150,000 in property and $20,000 in contents.
