Two people have been taken to hospital and a dog is lucky to be alive after a blaze took hold at a home in Balcatta overnight.
Firefighters were called to the fire on Renmark Street about 12.41am on Sunday. Four appliances attended and it took 40 minutes to extinguish the fire.
The dog was rescued as firefighters fought to keep the blaze contained to one room of the house.
Family were seen hugging one another outside the home.
Two occupants received minor injuries and were treated by paramedics on scene and transported to hospital.
The cause of the fire is yet to be determined.
