LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Lubbock Fire Department responded to reports of a house fire at 35th Street and University Avenue just after 8 a.m. Upon arriving, crews found a fire in the attic of the home. The smell of smoke was evident on the scene.

Four fire engines responded to extinguish the flames and no injuries have been reported in the fire.

Witnesses on scene say there was no one in the home at the time of the fire, and the two dogs were rescued. 

Fire damage to the exterior and attic was extensive and one resident has been displaced.

The Fire Marshal's Office responded and ruled the fire accidental and the cause was improper disposal of smoking materials. High winds contributed to the rapid spread of the fire.?
