A family already displaced by storm damage lost their home and their pets to a fire Thursday morning in Rockcastle County.
Brodhead firefighters say the animals were living in the mobile home that went up in flames while the family stayed with relatives. Around 8 a.m., a neighbor saw flames and called for help, but it was too late. The four dogs and two cats died in the fire.
"Apparently, a few years ago the winds knocked the trailer off its foundation. The family was staying with other family members until they got back on their feet. And they checked on the animals just last night," said Asst. Chief Rick Branham.
The family was still keeping most of their belongings in the mobile home.
