BEDFORD, Ohio (AP) - A couple in suburban Cleveland had to jump from a second-floor window to escape an early morning house fire.

The Northeast Ohio Media Group (https://bit.ly/T2JjUL ) reports that 32-year-old Tesa Tench and her 33-year-old boyfriend, George Martin, got out without injuries after the home in Bedford burned early Monday.

Some pets also got out of the house, although one of their dogs died later.

Firefighters said the front of the home was engulfed in flames when they arrived at about 1:30 a.m. Monday. Tench said the entire staircase was burning, forcing them to jump from a window to firefighters waiting below.

Damage was extensive, and the cause was being investigated.
