OGDEN — A dog died in a house fire in Ogden Monday morning.

Ogden firefighters responded to a two-story, single-family home at 1960 Jackson Ave. shortly after 1 a.m. The person living in the home escaped with no injuries, but a dog was caught and died in the blaze, said Ogden Deputy Fire Chief Eric Bauman.

Fourteen firefighters and a battalion chief fought the fire with a ladder truck, two engines, one paramedic rescue and an ambulance. The fire was contained to one bedroom. The Red Cross helped the person living in the home, who was displaced by the fire.

Investigators are still determining what ignited the blaze.
