A fire early Monday morning destroyed a Rochester home.
The caller told dispatchers that everyone at 7952 South State Road 25 was out safely and they were trying to get the dogs out of the home. The property is owned by Thomas Stroud.
That call came in just before 3:00 am. Minutes later, the structure was fully engulfed in flames.
Kewanna, Liberty and Twelve Mile assisted. The road in front of the home was reopened in the 6:00 am hour.
