Fire destroys Milton home

Posted: Updated:

Fire destroyed a house in Milton overnight.

Firefighters were called to the house at 11 Red Clover Way at about 2 a.m. Tuesday. They say the fire started on the outside of the home and spread to the garage and the house.

Firefighters say the people in the house can thank their dog for saving their lives.

"Thankfully the pet once again awakened the homeowner," says Milton Fire Chief Don Turner. "We see that's quite common in these type of houses."

The residents -- and their dog -- got out safely. The house and the two cars in the garage are a total loss. Fire officials say they don't know what caused the fire yet.
