TUCSON - A fire on the Eastside Thursday morning destroyed a home.
While all the people managed to get out, some of their pets didn't.
It broke out around 4:45am in the 2900 block of East 26th Street, near 22nd and Country Club.
A handicapped person was pulled out of the house through a bedroom window before firefighters arrived.
Six people and 15 dogs were inside at the time.
Some of the dogs were able to get out of the house, but some are still unaccounted for.
It took eleven fire units and 27 firefighters about 12 minutes to bring the fire under control.
Damages are estimated at $100,000 dollars.
One person was taken to the hospital for treatment.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
The Red Cross is helping the residents with shelter and food.
