A Kanawha County woman who tried to save her pets in a burning home was being treated for burns at a local hospital.
Firefighters said the woman and man, who lived at the Vine Drive home in Pinch, were not home when it caught fire, but found it burning when they came back about 9:30 p.m. Saturday.
Both were injured when they went inside to rescue several pets.
Only the woman had to go to the hospital to be treated for burns.
Just one pet was saved, and, unfortunately, a dog, several cats and a bird did not make it out alive.
The cause of the fire was still under investigation.
