It was a scorching day for firefighters battling a house fire in Enfield.
Neighbors on Green Manor Road called for help to report a garage fire that spread to a house.
Extra crews were sent to the scene so firefighters could rotate in and out because of the heat.
The family was not home at the time.
Three cats inside the home died.
It is unclear what caused the fire.
