SEBASTIAN — Two residents, along with their four dogs, were displaced after a house fire that ignited overnight, fire rescue crews said. No injuries were reported in the incident, Indian River County Assistant Fire Chief Bill Herrington said.

Red Cross South Florida Region assisted the residents – two adults – and pets with temporary living accommodations.

Firefighters were called to the blaze about 3:30 a.m. Monday at the residence along 50th Avenue in Sebastian. Herrington said the flames originated in a bedroom and that the home sustained extensive smoke damage.

“There was fire damage to a couple of rooms,” Herrington said.

Herrington said fire crews knocked down the flames within 16 minutes. The residence is uninhabitable for now, he said.

The state fire marshal was investigating the cause of the blaze.
