Authorities are investigating a fire that damaged a Boulder County home and killed a dog that had been inside.

Emergency crews had responded to the blaze Sunday afternoon to find the house fully engulfed in homes. Rocky Mountain Fire Department spokeswoman Pam Kaan says no one had been home at the time, but firefighters found the family’s dog and were unable to resuscitate it.

A total of eight agencies had responded to the fire, including the Louisville and Lafayette fire departments and the Boulder Emergency Squad.

Kaan says it’s too early to estimate the cost of the damage to the home.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
