Rural/Metro Fire is on scene of a house fire at Old Nogales Highway and Summit. 

Jay Karlik of RMFD says they received several reports of smoke coming from a home around 1:15 p.m.

Crews arrived on scene and began to fight the fire and search for victims.

Firefighters located and rescued two dogs from the home and administered emergency treatment. 

After several minutes one of the dogs got up and ran away. 

No one was home at the time of the fire. The Red Cross will be assisting the family of five and three dogs that lived in the home after they were displaced from the fire. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
