ORLANDO, Fla. – Two people and a dog made it out of a house fire in Orlando early Sunday, according to the Orlando Fire Department.
Crews were dispatched around 3:30 a.m. to the fire on Bahama Drive, near Lake Weldona, where they were able to quickly put it out, officials said.
A believed cause of the fire was unavailable at the time of this report. One neighbor who lives nearby, Bill Vose, told News 6 that he heard an explosion from the home.

“It was in the back of the house and you could see it coming from over the roof,” he said. “...When I came outside I saw probably 40-50 police and firemen.”
Vose added he and many other neighbors had to evacuate as firefighters worked to douse the blaze.
Video of the scene — viewable in the media player at the top of this story — shows flames exiting the house’s roof.
Vose said he was happy that the couple living in the home safely escaped.
“Of course they lost a lot of belongings, but they were fine,” he said.
No other details were shared.
