Roanoke Fire-EMS said it arrived to have a fire on the second floor of a house swiftly spreading to an attic space.
Three people inside the house escaped uninjured. One dog was killed, and a cat was missing.
Wasena Avenue and Main Street were closed during the fire response. The flames were extinguished, and the cause was under investigation Friday morning.
