A Saukville family's two dogs were killed Wednesday in a morning house fire at the corner of Whitegate Drive and South Glencrest Court.
Nobody was home at the time of the blaze at the single-family home at 665 W. Whitegate Drive, said Saukville Police Chief Bill Meloy.
Emergency personnel responded a call of smoke coming out of a window at about 11:40 a.m. The blaze, which Meloy said caused "extensive damage," was brought until control in about two hours.
"They lost two precious pets in the fire and that was tragic," the chief said. "There was nobody else hurt."
Foul play is not suspected, but officials still working to determine the cause of the fire.
In addition to Saukville, fire departments from Port Washington, Grafton, Waubeka, Thiensville, Newburg, Mequon, Fredonia and Cedarburg also responded to the call.
Patch will have more details on the fire as they become available.
