No injuries were reported after a doghouse attached to a residence at 417 S. Union St. caught fire Tuesday morning in Emporia.

At about 9:40 a.m., scanner traffic indicated a structure fire in the 400 block of South Union Street.

Battalion Chief Tony Fuller said there were four people at the home when the fire ignited. Sixteen animals were also in the home.

“There were four occupants in the house and 16 animals,” Fuller said. “Most of them have been accounted for.”

Fuller said no animals had been found deceased inside of the home

Emporia Fire Department personnel were still investigating the cause of the fire. Fuller said more information would be provided later in the day.
