A duplex fire in the West Kessler neighborhood this morning killed a woman and her dogs.
The fire started around 3:45 a.m. in the 700 block of North Oak Cliff Boulevard.
A man who lived in one side of the duplex escaped the fire by climbing over a backyard fence. The woman, who Dallas Fire Rescue says was in her 60s, died in her kitchen. Her six dogs also died in the fire.
KXAS reports that the fire is still under investigation but doesn’t appear to be suspicious.
