Abilene fire fighters responded to the call around 6:15. They found a dog house in the back yard of a house on Wynrush Circle was in flames. The fire worked it's way up the back wall of the house and into the second story and attic, causing a significant amount of damage.
A teenager was home with two dogs. He and one of the dogs, who is also blind, made it out safely. No word on the second dog.
Fire officials believe a heating lamp on the dog house is to blame in the fire.
