PHOENIX - Authorities say two pets died in an overnight fire in Phoenix.
Larry Nunez with the Phoenix Fire Department said the fire appeared to have started in a bedroom at the home near 35th and Northern avenues.
When firefighters arrived they found a woman in a wheelchair and another adult female outside the home. Nunez said one woman is in her 60s and the other is her daughter-in-law.
Flames were coming from the bedroom and Nunez said there were bars on the window making access to the fire a challenge.
The woman in the wheelchair suffered smoke inhalation and was taken to a local hospital.
Firefighters found oxygen bottles exploding as they checked the home and worked to put out the fire.
A cat and dog were found dead inside the home.
Nunez said it is unclear if the home had working smoke detectors.
