A home on Buffalo Park Road was destroyed by fire on Thursday afternoon.

Evergreen firefighters saw smoke rising from an area near the home about noon and responded before the fire station received a 911 call from a neighbor, said Doug Saba, Evergreen Fire/Rescue spokesman.

The resident, who was not identified, was not home when the fire started from undetermined causes, Saba said. She returned while firefighters were working at the scene.

Evergreen Fire/Rescue received assistance from Indian Hills Fire in containing the blaze, and used seven trucks to haul water to the site. Firefighters extinguished the flames by 2 p.m., Saba said.

Rescue workers are searching for two of four dogs that were on the property when the fire started, Saba said. The other two were found and rescued.
