A dog is dead after a house fire in Topeka that investigators believe was intentionally set.

The Topeka Fire Dept. responded to a structure fire just after 11:30 p.m. Saturday in the 700 block of SW Fillmore.

When crews arrived, they found smoke and flames coming from the home.

Crews were able to eventually contain the fire.

Two dogs were found inside the home. One was pronounced dead on the scene while the other is receiving care for smoke inhalation.

A preliminary investigation indicates the fire was intentionally set.

Damages are estimated at about $18,000.
