The fire was reported about 4:45 a.m. in the 200 block of Monarch Bay Drive (map), according to Capt. Steve Concialdi with the Orange County Fire Authority.

About 30 firefighters responded to the scene to help battle the blaze, which was knocked down around 5:15 a.m., Concialdi said.

Crews were able to rescue the homeowner’s chocolate Labrador from the burning single-story home, OCFA officials said on Twitter.

The 11-year-old dog, named “Coco,” was later walking in front of a neighbor’s house and seemed to be uninjured, a video from the scene showed.

A portion of the large home’s roof collapsed, but no injuries were reported, Concialdi said.

The fire caused about $250,000 in damage to the structure and $150,000 to contents, according to a tweet.

Investigators were called to the scene to pinpoint the cause of the fire.
