A home on Prado Lane in Mountain Gate was completely destroyed by a fire Tuesday morning, fire officials say.

The fire was originally reported at 13790 Prado Lane around 7:30 a.m. and when firefighters arrived the home was fully engulfed. Crews knocked down the blaze in about 45 minutes, but the home is a total loss.

Three people were inside the home and made it out safely, but three pets are believed to have died.

The cause is under investigation, but officials say one of the residents started a fire in a wood stove about 10-15 minutes before the blaze started and it appears that is where everything started.
