LAYTON, Utah — Layton Fire Department officials say a dog died in a house fire Wednesday.

A neighbor called 911 after hearing a smoke alarm going off and saw smoke coming of the windows next door.

Two children who lived at the house attempted to get back inside to rescue a dog, but were unsuccessful. The dog was found dead inside the home where it was determined it had died of smoke inhalation.

One of the children also inhaled smoke, but was released to his family after being attended to by Layton and Hill Air Force Base emergency crews on the scene.

Fire officials say the house is currently uninhabitable and the family will be staying with friends or family in the area. There is no word on what caused the fire or how much damage was done to the home.
