Firefighters battled a blaze in Franklin Township that destroyed a home this afternoon killing several house pets.

Crews were called to 7934 Old State Road just before noon today.

Franklin Township, Edinboro, Platea, Cranesville, Lake Shore and Mckean fire departments all assisted in fighting the fire.

According to firefighters a cat, two rabbits and two dogs didn't make it out.

Gusty winds and cold temperatures made the fire tough to control.

Officials say the Pennsylvania State Police fire marshal will be investigating the cause of the fire.
