A Carnegie home was destroyed by fire on Wednesday morning.

The home, in the 500 block of Fifth Avenue, is a total loss following the 10 a.m. fire, Carnegie police Chief Jeff Kennedy said.

No one was in the house, but two dogs escaped without injury, officials said.

Carnegie Volunteer Fire and Rescue Bureau Lt. Butch Chapman said he thinks the home was burning for a while before firefighters got the call.

Volunteer firefighters from Crafton, Green Tree and Mt. Lebanon also responded to the fire.

The cause is under investigation by the Allegheny County Fire Marshal's Office.
