DUANESBURG – A fire in Duanesburg killed two family pets and heavily damaged the house of two military personnel.

Ten fire departments responded to the home on McGuire School Road on Thursday.

The Schenectady County Fire Coordinator says two dogs died in the fire but no one else was injured.

The cause has been ruled accidental.

Coordinator John Nuzback says based on the damage he saw, he doesn’t think the home can be saved.
