Augusta County firefighters are investigating the cause of a Crimora house fire that killed a dog on Wednesday morning.
A neighbor discovered fire damage in the morning when he went to check on the house, but it's unclear exactly when the fire started.
The owners were not home. According to Bryan Mace, with Augusta County Fire-Rescue, the fire was in the back master bedroom and burned itself out.
It caused heat and smoke damage to the home and killed one dog, but there were no injuries to humans. Since no one was home, the Augusta County Sheriff's Office was called out as a precaution.
They say the fire does not appear to have been suspicious.
However, the fire marshal is investigating to determine what sparked it.
