NORTH LAS VEGAS, NV (FOX5) -

A North Las Vegas house is a total loss and six adults and six children are displaced following a fire Tuesday morning.

The one good piece of news out of this is firefighters were able to rescue two puppies from the blaze.

The fire broke out at a single-story home on Englestad Street before 8:30 a.m. Firefighters arrived to find heavy smoke and flames coming from the house.

No one was injured and crews were able to keep the fire from spreading to nearby homes. The house is destroyed, with damage estimated at $185,000. Investigators determined the cause to be an accidental cooking fire.

When firefighters conducted a search of the house, they located two unconscious and unresponsive puppies inside. The puppies were given CPR and were eventually revived. A crowd of by-standers broke out into cheers and claps.

The dogs were running around and seemed to be in good health by the time crews left.

Those displaced by the fire are being aided by the American Red Cross.
