BUFFALO, Mo. — Fire crews were called to a house fire in Buffalo, Missouri at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday.
Officials say the house, in the 300 block of East Benton is a total loss, but is still standing.
No one was home when the blaze started. Neighbors saw smoke, called for help, and tried to rescue 2 dogs that lived there. The fire was already too big for the animals to be saved, though.
Buffalo's fire chief says the fire probably started when a space heater fell over or was knocked over.
