Oldsmar, Florida -- A woman woke up around 7:30 Monday morning to her dog barking more than usual. When Patti Autore got up, one of her Irish Weaton Terriers led to her to the garage where she saw smoke.

Autore quickly discovered a fire had broken out in her garage at 204 Bedford St. that held five motorcycles.

Autore and her boyfriend were able to save one of the motorcycles and get out, with both of their dogs, before any of them were injured.

Four area agencies responded but most of the home was destroyed.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time.
