A house fire early Thursday morning in Nashua took the life of the family pets.
Nashua Fire Chief Tom Johnson says they were called to the residential fire at the corner of Greeley and Cedar streets at about 2 a.m. He says as many as four people were in the home at the time of the blaze, but all had evacuated the house by the time firefighters arrived. However, three cats and a dog perished in the fire.
Johnson says at least two people went to the hospital, possibly for smoke inhalation. The cause of the fire has not yet been determined, but most of the damage was confined to the south section of the house. There was also some smoke damage in the home .
The Ionia Fire Department assisted in battling the fire, with Chickasaw County Rescue Squad and Chickasaw Ambulance Service also responding to the scene. Johnson also thanked Chickasaw County dispatchers for their assistance.
