UPDATE @ 8:30 p.m.: A family pet, believed to be a dog, perished in the house fire on Crestway Drive in Clayton that destroyed the attached garage and damaged the first floor of the home, Clayton Fire Chief Brian Garver said.
The cause of the fire is under investigation, he said, noting it was too early to estimate the dollar amount of the damage to the structure and contents.
