A house is damaged after a late-night fire in downtown Eau Claire.

Several crews were called to a report of flames and smoke coming out of 510 Jefferson Street just after 11:30 p.m. Sunday night.

The Eau Claire Fire Department has confirmed three people escaped from the home safely and no one was hurt. However, several pets did die in the fire.

There is extensive damage to the back side of the house, and investigators will continue to search in the coming days for a cause.
