KENNETT, Mo. (KAIT) – Crews responded to a house fire in Kennett Tuesday evening.

Fire Marshal Dennis Hamlett said they got a call at 4:15 p.m. about the fire on the 500-block of West 9th Street.

Firefighters on the scene said it was a small kitchen fire that spread to the attic. Nobody was home, but two dogs were inside. Crews tried to revive the dogs but both died in the fire.

Lieutenant Tyler Roberts said the fire did displace a woman and her niece, and the fire seems to be unintentional.
