Three people in West Des Moines were saved from a fire after a dog woke them up early Friday morning.

The West Des Moines Fire Department says crews were called to 1310 Crimson Street a little after 2:00 a.m. When firefighters arrived flames and smoke were visible coming from the garage of the home.

The three people inside the home were able to get out safely after being woken by a dog.

Officials say the fire appears to have started in the engine of one of the vehicles in the garage and caused extensive damage to three vehicles as well as the inside of the garage.

The home itself suffered minor smoke damage.

Officials say damage to the vehicles and garage is estimated at $70,000.
