A Woodway home with no working smoke detectors was destroyed by a fire early Monday morning and two dogs were likely killed in the blaze, Woodway Public Safety Director Yost Zakhary said.

Fire crews were called to the 9500 block of Brookhollow Drive shortly before 3:30 a.m. as flames burned through the roof of the two-story home. Multiple fire trucks and personnel arrived at the home and found that six residents living in the home were able to escape the fire, but Zakhary said the home did not have any working smoke detectors inside.

Officials and family members were unable to find two dogs during and after the fire. Zakhary said another dog was saved.

Fire crews were able to get the fire under control about an hour after arriving at the house. Firefighters remained at the house for several hours to ensure no additional hot spots flared up.

Zakhary said a fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, but foul play is not suspected. He said the house is a total loss.
