ROCHESTER, Pa. (AP) - Fire investigators are trying to find out what sparked a blaze that ripped through three houses in western Pennsylvania.

The fire broke out at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday at a home in Rochester. Fire Chief Ed Hermick says the fire quickly engulfed two other homes and damaged a fourth.

Eight dogs were rescued from the blaze, but two are missing.

Hermick says two firefighters were treated for heat exhaustion. Several firefighters had just finished training before the blaze broke out.

Fire officials are investigating what caused the fire. They believe it started in the kitchen.
