JANESVILLE, Wis. — Three people were displaced Saturday after a fire at a Janesville home.

Crews were called to a home in the 400 block of South Garfield Avenue just before 8 a.m. Fire could be seen from the second story of the home when the first unit arrived.

Officials said three adults live in the house, but only one woman was home at the time of the incident. She and her dog were able to escape, but she was injured in the process.

The woman was taken to a local hospital and her injuries are not considered to be life-threatening.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined, and a damage estimate has not been completed. The residents are being helped by the American Red Cross.
