CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - A house fire on the 5000 block of Pershing Avenue kept crews occupied early Tuesday morning.

19 News crews were on the scene around 1 a.m. when flames erupted from the two-story home.

Firefighters said the second floor collapsed while they were inside, but nobody was injured.

Fortunately nobody was home at the time, but neighbors said a family did occupy the home.

Their dog was rescued from the home after he ran back inside once the fire was out.

Firefighters said the fire did $20,000 in damages and they have requested the home to be demolished.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
