Three pets died in a Rockcastle County fire Thursday night.
Firefighters say nobody was home when a fire broke out in the back of a mobile home on Dale Lane and Copper Creek Road, about 15 miles north of Mount Vernon around 9 p.m. Firefighters say despite heavy damage to the home, it was not a total loss, but three dogs died in the blaze.
"We were able to save at least half of the house without any damage, besides some smoke. The other half, we're attempting to salvage some belongings," Brindle Ridge firefighter April Johnson said.
Fire department officials did not release any information about the cause of the fire.
