Calgary fire crews say they rescued a dog from a burning home in the southeast Calgary neighbourhood of Dover on Monday.

Just before 4:30 p.m., the fire department responded to multiple 911 calls about a house fire on Dover Ridge Court S.E., the department said in a release.

Three adults had safely left the home before fire crews arrived.

The department said one caller reported a tree in the backyard was fully engulfed in flames, with fire spreading to the porch and up the back of the home.

Firefighters rescued the dog from the home, and assessed it. It's doing well and back with its owners.

A live power line was also found on the scene, and Enmax responded, shutting off power to the area.

Fire crews got the fire under control and continue to extinguish hot spots and do salvage, the department said.

The home's rear, main floor interior and attic were damaged.

Investigators are working to determine the fire's origin and cause. The department said it's unknown if there were working smoke alarms in the house.
