HIALEAH, FLA. (WSVN) - Crews raced to rescue some animals from a house fire in Hialeah that left three people without a place to call home.

Hialeah Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the blaze near East 10th Avenue and 37th Street, Monday afternoon.

The damage to the structure was so extensive that the three people who lived there, including a child, will need a new place to stay.

Firefighters found five puppies in the home and were able to rescue them.

The cause of the fire is not yet known.
