A Dallas firefighter sustained serious burns working a house fire Thursday morning.
Two cats and two dogs died in the fire.
Dallas Fire Rescue responded to the fire in the 3300 block of Barnard Boulevard, near Martin Weiss Park, around 3:30 a.m.
They found light smoke, and residents told them the fire was at the back of the house and that there were animals inside.
Several fire fighters received minor burns in the fire, and one was taken to Parkland Hospital, where he is in stable condition.
The fire started in a bedroom at the back of the house, and firefighters believe that a possible flashover occurred while they were inside.
