A house fire claimed the lives of two cats and a dog over the weekend.

The homeowner was not home Saturday afternoon when a pedestrian spotted flames coming from the house at 910 N. 4th St. in Breese.

Breese Fire Department Chief Bob Wuest said firefighters responded to the scene at about 3:30 p.m.

“There were flames coming from the windows,” Wuest said. “The house is a total loss.”

Wuest said the cause of the blaze is still undetermined. Other details, including how many people lived at the home, were not immediately available.
