Streamwood Fire Department

Two dogs died and a cat was rescued Tuesday in a house fire in northwestern suburban Streamwood.

Firefighters responded to the house fire in the 0-100 block of Glendale Court at 4:24 p.m. and saw heavy smoke coming from the kitchen of the two-story home, according to a statement from the Streamwood Fire Department.

The residents reported the fire when they arrived home, and reported that two dogs and a cat were inside, fire officials said.

Firefighters rescued the animals from the building, but the dogs died despite attempts to save them, fire officials said.

The fire started near the kitchen stove and extended to the attic. The damage is estimated at $100,000, fire officials said.
