GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - The wooden home caught fire around 4:30 P.M. on Saturday in the Springtree neighborhood off of Northwest 39th avenue.

Gainesville Fire Rescue responded and said there were oxygen tanks inside and outside of the home, but neither posed a problem during clean-up efforts.

“When we arrived, there was heavy smoke and flames coming from one of the sides of the building. Our firefighters went in and made entry, extinguished the fire. There were no injuries to the homeowners but we did find some deceased pets,” said Don Campbell, District Fire Chief.

Campbell said there’s damage inside the home and the cause is still being investigated.
