ELYRIA, Ohio — Two houses were heavily damaged in separate house fires Wednesday, with one of the fires claiming the lives to two family pets.

The owners of the pets were able to safely get out of home Wednesday evening on the 200 block of Canary Drive, according to the Elyria Fire Department. The fire caused an estimated $15,000 in damage and the home is considered a total loss.

Firefighters from Lorain, Elyria Township and Sheffield Village assisted.

The first fire occurred at about 9:15 a.m. on the 400 block of Cleveland Street. The fire started in the basement of the home and quickly worked its way up to all floors of the two-story home, the fire department says.

The home was undergoing renovations and no one was inside at the time of the fire, officials say. The fire caused an estimated $50,000 in damages.

Firefighters from Elyria and North Ridgeville assisted at the scene. The cause of both fires remains under investigation.
