Toledo family loses home and pet in fire

A fire at a North Toledo home, near the intersection of Lagrange and Page Street, took the life of at least one family dog on Monday night.

The homeowner, Kari Cole, said that she and her family were not at the property when the blaze started but lost everything.

â??It's hard to believe that everything you had is basically gone in a matter of no time,â?? Cole said.

Authorities are now looking into a cause for the fire; Cole tells WNWO that she was told it started in the back of the home.

Cole adds that she was not able to afford insurance for the items in her home.
