She said the home's detached garage was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Family members living in the home were able to evacuate to safety, but their dog suffered minor burns to his paws. The dog was treated for his injuries at the scene.

The fire was extinguished around 6:35 p.m., according to Shandi. She said firefighters from Burbank aided in tamping down the flames.

Several power lines over the home were damaged as a result of the flames. The fire also caused the garage's roof to collapse.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
