A house fire in Springdale early Sunday killed the residents' dog before firefighters could put out the flames.

Chief Kevin Wilhelm of the Springdale Borough Volunteer Fire Department said crews were dispatched about 1 a.m. to the house on Oakwood Street. Firefighters contained the fire to the master bedroom and extinguished it within half an hour, he said.

The dog was apparently stuck in the bedroom when the fire broke out, according to Wilhelm. No one was injured.

Wilhelm was unsure if the residents were home at the time or arrived when the fire crews did.

The resident and neighbors could not be reached for comment.

The Allegheny County Fire Marshal's Office is investigating.
