A third dog was injured in the blaze, which broke out around 12:15 a.m. in the 3000 block of Westbourne Drive, fire inspector Lisa Martinez said. Firefighters controlled the blaze in about 25 minutes and remained on scene until about 3:45 a.m. cleaning up, Martinez said.

Fire crews arrived to see heavy flames and smoke coming from the front of the single-story house she said. Two women and man living there were out of the home when fire crews arrived and were uninjured.

The Red Cross was helping the three residents with temporary housing. Fire crews called Antioch Animal Services to tend to the injured dog.

Inspectors have not determined a cause for the fire, Martinez said. Fire officials had initially reported that one dog had died in the fire, but later amended that when another dog was found in the home after the blaze was extinguished.
