VIDEO: The Office of Fire Investigation is searching for clues that may point to what caused a fire in Englewood, damaging three homes. The fire broke out at a home near 64th and South Carpenter Street around 3:00 a.m. Saturday morning. The man who lives there was not home. Upon arrival, firefighters found flames coming from the roof of home which then spread to the house next door. The house on the other side was also at risk. Firefighters searched for anyone who may have been in the home. The Battalion chief said the main challenge of the fire was the cathedral-style home, which allows the fire to race straight up with nothing to stop it. It took crews an hour to put out the fire. A family living next door was able to escape with the help of their service dog.
