Six people were displaced from their home after a fire in rural Door County.

Firefighters were called to a home on County Road XC on the east side of Highway 57, near Brussels, at about 1:30 a.m.

Brussels-Union-Gardner Fire Chief Curtis Vanderite says the first units on scene found the home engulfed in flames.

All six residents--a grandmother and grandfather, their daughter and her husband, and two children--escaped the home.

Firefighters found three of the family's cats and three of the family's dogs alive. Vanderite says other cats are unaccounted for and it is unclear if they made it out of the house.

Our Action 2 News crew was kept far back from the home as firefighters worked.

Tanker trucks were used to bring in enough water to put out the fire.

The American Red Cross is helping the family who lived at the residence with emergency aid and care.

No one was injured.

The State Fire Marshal was called in to investigate the cause of the fire.
