Firefighters rescued a dog from a burning Overland Park home Monday.

Crews from Overland Park and Leawood were called just before 2 p.m. to a house fire in the 7300 block of West 152nd Street.

When crews arrived, heavy smoke and fire could be seen coming from the garage of a two-story home with fire extending into the second floor and attic.

Firefighters said homeowners reported that all occupants were out safely, but that a dog was still inside. Crews found the dog and returned him safely to his owners.

It took firefighters about 40 minutes to put the fire out. Three adults were home at the time of the fire.

A resident reported hearing an explosion in the garage. He opened the door to the garage and saw smoke and fire. He suffered minor smoke inhalation and was treated at the scene.

Authorities said damage to the home was significant and the exact cause of the fire is under investigation.

The Red Cross responded to help the displaced residents.
