An early morning fire forced a woman and her dog from their home in north Huntsville on Tuesday.
The fire broke on out in a home along Chalmers Avenue NW, just west of Pulaski Pike.
The homeowner woke up to find the fire in her home.
Fire fighters arrived shortly before 12:30 a.m. and were able to have the bulk of the fire out within minutes of their arrival.
Officials told WAAY 31 that there was heavy fire damage between the den and the garage as well as smoke damage in other parts of the home.
Crews were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the attic and doing extensive roof damage.
While they were working on the fire, they were able to rescue the woman's dog and bring it safely into the backyard while they worked.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
