RACINE, Wis. (AP) - Three people escaped safely from a fire in Racine that caused extensive damage to a multi-family home.

Eighteen-year-old Jenacy Reyes told the Racine Journal Times (https://bit.ly/1NiXuxx ) that she was babysitting a 3-year-old Wednesday afternoon when she noticed the room she was in getting warm.

The newspaper reports Reyes grabbed the girl, woke another person in the house and escaped the fire.

The Racine Fire Department said in a news release that firefighters saved two cats in an upper-unit apartment in the building but a dog in the lower unit died.

The department says the fire originated on the first floor but the cause remains under investigation.

The total loss was estimated at $60,000.
