BULLHEAD CITY–A family was reunited with their pets Saturday after a fire started in the garage of a home in the 1300 block of Arcadia Boulevard. 

Bullhead Fire spokeswoman Lori Viles said her agency were dispatched to the fire around 1:30 p.m. Saturday. 

Viles said responding crews reported all occupants were safely outside the home, but their four pets were still unaccounted for. 

The garage blaze was quickly contained to the area and firefighters were able to locate and rescue the family’s pets safely from the home.

Viles said the quick reaction of the homeowners were in part to having working smoke alarms. 

The home received smoke damage, resulting in both residents to be displaced. The American Red Cross was notified to assist the family. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. 

The Bullhead City Fire Department would like to remind all citizens to check their smoke alarms to ensure the alarms are functioning properly. Smoke alarms should be placed in every bedroom, outside of sleeping areas and on every level of your home. 

Start the New Year out by checking your smoke alarm batteries and replacing alarms that are more than ten years old.
