TERRACE HEIGHTS, Wash. -- A Terrace Heights home went up in flames Thursday night. Investigators are now looking for answers.

The fire call came in around 7:00 p.m. on Justice Drive near Henning Street.

Firefighters say no one was home at the time. The fire ripped through the top floor heavily damaging the house.

Crews said two pets were in the basement at the time of the fire. One dog was located but the second was not.

Neighbors watched in shock.

"I don't know them personally, you just feel a connection because it's your neighborhood," said neighbor Nicole Mata. "It hits so close to home. I couldn't imagine going home and seeing our house on fire. 25 years of memories.

The cause of the fire has yet to be determined.
