    Firefighters rescued a dog, which was being treated for severe burns.

    There were no reports of any other injuries.

    The fire destroyed the home and damaged at least two others.

    When firefighters arrived, they found the home filled with debris, which can hamper fire suppression and rescue efforts, D.C. Fire and EMS spokesman Alan Etter said.

    The cause of the fire is being investigated.
