Officials investigate cause of Pear Park fire

Fire officials in Clifton on Friday were investigating the cause of a fire Thursday night that burned a Pear Park home.

A resident of the home said she saw the fire start in a shed on the property and spread to the family’s home, 418 Lark Drive.

The extended family of five people who live in the home have two dogs and 17 cats.

Firefighters with the Clifton Fire Protection District were able to save one of the dogs from the fire Thursday night. The other dog survived in the smoky home, and some of the cats were believed to be OK, too, said Keith DeShazer with the Clifton Fire Department.

DeShazer said the home’s west end did not sustain excessive smoke damage. Firefighters may take a couple days to determine the cause of the blaze, he said.
