UPDATE: Fire officials say a dog was killed in the house fire at 313 Third Ave. in the village of Frankfort Thursday morning.

The people who lived in the house were not home at the time the fire broke out, and no other injuries have been reported.

The Frankfort fire chief says the kitchen was gutted and there was a lot of damage on the first floor, but quick work from the responding fire departments prevented the fire from spreading to the second floor of the home.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation, but the chief says they believe the fire started in the kitchen.
