Lufkin Fire responded to a house fire just before noon today in the 400 block of Whitehouse Drive.

 

A neighbor called for help after noticing smoke coming from the home at 11:53 a.m. The owners were not home at the time.

 

The first firefighters on the scene arrived at 11:56 a.m. to find a two-story home with heavy smoke. They initially fought the fire from the inside and upon entering the front door, found four dogs that had succumbed to smoke inhalation. CPR was attempted but it was not successful.

 

The fire was called under control at 1:09 p.m.

 

Three chiefs, four engines, and one support staff member responded to the scene for a total of 21 personnel.  

 

Lufkin Police also responded to the scene for traffic control. A portion of Whitehouse Drive between Oakhollow Street and Tulane Drive was temporarily closed.

 

The cause remains under investigation by the Lufkin Fire Marshal’s Office.
