Firefighters discovered the bodies of a woman and a dog inside a burning house in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Dallas Fire-Rescue told The Dallas Express in an email that crews responded to reports of a structure fire at a home at the 2700 block of Burger Avenue in Southeast Dallas at about 1:28 a.m. on September 6. Upon arrival at the scene, fire crews noted “heavy fires” inside the one-story home.

Firefighters were able to extinguish the blaze about 25 minutes later at 1:53 a.m.

The identity of the dead woman found inside the home has not been confirmed.

One firefighter was hospitalized for an evaluation following the incident but was released later the same morning.

“Though investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire, it will remain undetermined pending the Medical Examiner’s final ruling on the victim’s cause of death,” said Jason L. Evans, public information officer for Dallas Fire-Rescue, in the email.

Last month, firefighters discovered the bodies of a woman and a dog inside a home following a house fire in Northeast Dallas, as previously reported by The Dallas Express.
