TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A fire in midtown took the lives of several animals Thursday afternoon.

Capt. Barrett Baker with the Tucson Fire Department said an apartment fire in the 2,000 block of E. Roger Road killed two dogs, a rabbit and several other pets.

Authorities said multiple people called 911 and the apartment manager tried to get into the apartment to make sure everyone was out but was pushed out by heavy smoke.

Firefighters cut a hole in the roof to let smoke escape and were able to extinguish the flames, which was when they saw the animals.

The resident was not home at the time of the fire and could not be contacted, according to a news release.

The cause is under investigation.
