Smoke from a house fire killed three family pets in Newton on Sunday.

Shortly before noon, neighbours called the fire department after seeing smoke coming from a house in the 7700-block of 143 Street.

The house was full of smoke when firefighters arrived.

About 30 minutes later, the homeowners arrived to learn of the deaths of their dog and two cats.

The fire, which is believed to have started in the kitchen, is under investigation.
