Two dogs were killed in a Van Nuys house fire on Thursday, Los Angeles Fire Department officials said.

The blaze was reported about 5:50 p.m. in the 7000 block of Bevis Avenue, the fire department said.

The blaze appeared to begin in an attached garage and spread to the attic of the one-story home. The flames also destroyed a car parked in the drive way and caused some damage to a nearby house.

No injuries were reported, but two dogs were found dead in the “smoke-charged” home, officials said.

Another dog was found and was expected to be taken to the department of animal services.

Arson investigators and the Los Angeles Police Department were investigating the cause of the fire, said Battalion Chief Rodd Souter.
