A morning fire in Clearfield County destroyed a family's home and took the life of their pet. Several fire crews converged on the residence along Wrights Lane in Burnside Township just before 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, according to Lt. Billy Harris, of the Mahaffey Volunteer Fire Department. Authorities said the family of five was inside the home when the fire began but were able to make it out safely. According to family members, their dog was killed by the flames. According to Harris, nearly a dozen fire companies were called to fight the flames. He said the large call for responders came because of a lack of volunteers at that time of day. The American Red Cross is assisting the family, and a state police fire marshal has been called to investigate. There were no reports of any people being injured.
