A Hurricane home was a total loss in a fire Friday, and witnesses said they believe the family's cat and dog are feared to have died in the blaze.
The fire at 6 Meadow Drive was reported about 1:10 p.m. The three-member family who lives at the residence was not at home at the time of the fire, which was first noticed by a Hurricane police officer. The officer tried to put out the blaze, but it apparently had been smoldering for quite some time. Neighbors called 911.
