Crews responded to a house fire in on Evansville's west side around 12:30 Sunday afternoon.
Officials say when they arrived at the house in the 700 block of Delaware Street, the residents were still coming out of the house.
Family members tell 14 News they had several animals inside the home, including eight Pit Bull puppies. Residents say they were able to get all of the animals out and they are staying with family.
Officials say the fire was contained to a back bedroom and bathroom.
The fire is still under investigation, but residents say they think a candle or lamp may have been to blame.
