They become members of our family and last night three beloved family dogs were taken in a tragic house fire. 

The fire broke out around 5:23 p.m. when a call came into the Boise Fire Department. Firefighters rushed to S. Mistyglen Ave. where they could see heavy smoke pouring out of the home.

According to idahonews.com, no one was home except for the dogs when the house went up in flames and unfortunately, three out of the five dogs in the home perished in the fire.

No word yet on what type of dogs were tragically killed and we also don't know what started the blaze.

The entire situation is under investigation and we'll let you know if more details are released.
