SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — A missing dog and cat have been found after a home in Summit Park was destroyed in a fire Friday.

Summit police said a doggie-door could have possibly saved the lives of both a dog and a cat, but one dog is still unaccounted.

Jared Gallardo, neighbor, told Fox 13 Friday he was stunned to find the house up in flames and worried about what might have happened to the animals.

“Their two dogs were in the house,” Gallardo said. “Wonderful, beautiful dogs. All their personal possessions. It’s just awful.”

The hunt is still on for the second dog. Police think there’s a chance he slipped out the doggie-door, like the others.
