BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A mid-afternoon house fire in Boca Raton nearly cost several animals — including tropical fish — their lives, but Boca Raton Firefighters saved them, and managed to contain the blaze to a small area.

According to Boca Raton Fire Rescue:

At approximately 2:55pm Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services Department responded to a report of structure fire at a single family home located at 301 S.W. 3rd Street. Black smoke was seen exiting the home by the first arriving Firefighters. They had to force entry into the house since the occupants were not at home. Firefighters saved a dog, several birds that were in two cages, and even three tropical fish from the one room fire and heavy smoke inside the structure. The fire was immediately extinguished preventing further damage to the home. The aquarium electrical equipment is under investigation as the possible cause of the fire.
