Rural fire claims rental home

A little after 3 o clock today the Minot Rural Fire Department was called to a fire east of Minot at the Eastside Estates. 

The house was being rented by a family of 7, and they actually planned on buying the house in a couple months. The family is safe; it's a couple and their 5 kids. The family left the house about a half hour before the fire broke out, so they were not home at the time. 

The neighbors were the ones to find out about the fire after a loud pop sound. They knew there was a dog in the house and rescued it before it got too bad. 

As of now that is all we know -- we do not know the cause of the fire.
