Missoula Fire Chief Jason Diehl says crews responded to a structure fire early Thursday morning at 831 Woodford Avenue.

Diehl says heavy smoke damaged the home, and although no one was injured, three dogs were killed by smoke inhalation. Diehl says the cause of the fire is still under investigation, and there is no estimate on the amount of damage done by the fire.
