A family was displaced after a fire at a southwest Las Vegas home early Friday morning.

Clark County Fire Department reported the blaze near Warm Springs Road and Decatur Boulevard just after 3 a.m.

Fire officials said an indoor/outdoor fireplace appeared to have sparked the blaze, causing it to spread to the attic.

A dog and a cat perished in the fire while five other canines were rescued, CCFD said.

Two adults and two teens escaped the blaze. The American Red Cross of Southern Nevada were called to assist the family in relief efforts.

Damage was estimated at $150,000, CCFD said.
