A family in Scott County was not injured when their home went up in flames, but four puppies they bred did not.
The fire started inside the house in Robbins and spread to nearby cars and eventually the woods.
The homeowners say they breed dogs and several of their puppies had already been purchased.
"When I arrived here, I had two structures one of them was fully involved and the roof on the second structure had caught on fire and then finally the sparks blowed over and caught the woods on fire. Two additional fire departments and forestry." Lt. Wendell Smithers of the South Scott Fire Department told us.
Firefighters managed to save some dogs. The home is a complete loss and right now authorities aren't sure how the fire started.
