Devils Lake, MN (WDAY TV) - A man and his dog are dead after an early morning fire in Devils Lake.

Firefighters were called to this house on the corner of Seventh Street Northeast and Ninth Avenue around 7 a.m.

Authorities believe the fire started in the basement of the house; assistant fire chief Cory Meyer says it was difficult to battle the blaze because of the damage to the home.

Cory Meyer/Devils Lake Fire Department: “We found the floor sagging so we couldn't make much entry, so we tried another point in. As we tried another door in we found a victim inside unfortunately.”

Authorities haven't identified the victim yet.
