MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) - A home in Monrovia was heavily damaged by fire Thursday morning, and sadly, a pet was also lost.

The call about the fire came in at 8:26 a.m. due to a fire alarm, and the Monrovia Volunteer Fire Department responded.

The home was heavily damaged, but the structure can be saved, according to Shawn Terry, Monrovia's fire chief.  The first unit to arrive saw heavy smoke, and then flames came out of the roof, as you can see in the video by WHNT News 19's Beth Jett.

A dog was inside, in a crate, and died.

Harvest and Toney volunteer firefighters also responded to help Monrovia.

The Madison County Fire Marshal is investigating the cause of the fire.
