ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ) - No people were hurt in a fire that damaged a house in the Wasena neighborhood of Roanoke Friday morning, but one dog was found dead. Another dog survived, and a cat is missing.

Roanoke Fire-EMS was called to the 800 block of Wasena Avenue around 5:55 a.m. Fire was coming from a second floor bedroom and spread to the attic, which was being used for storage, making it difficult to get in and fight the flames there, according to Fire Chief David Hoback.

Everyone in the house got out safely, but all three people are displaced and will be aided by the Red Cross to find a place to stay.

The cause has not been determined.
