Three people were displaced this past weekend following a two-alarm fire in the Shadow Hawk neighborhood and the family's dog, Zahra is missing.

According to Renton Fire and Emergency Services Deputy Chief Greg Hartman, firefighters responded early Sunday morning to a call in the 3000 block of Southeast 11th Place.

Hartman said the structure, a duplex, had “quite extensive damage” despite firefighters getting the fire under control within 45 minutes. Inside, the flames burned a hole though a floor.

Hartman said the building was occupied at the time of the fire and the three residents were treated and released at the scene.

The family is still searching, however, for their 2-year-old Austrailian Sheppard/ Jack Russell mix named Zahra. She was last seen wearing a pink, spiked collar.

The family is asking anyone who might see the animal to call 425-443-0184 or 425-269-9669.

The damage is estimated at $360,000, including significant damage to the first and second floor of the main residence, water damage to an adjacent residence and fire damage to the outside of the buildings.

Hartman said the fire is currently under investigation, though it is not considered suspicious. But due to the amount of damage and the speed with which it spread, the fire is being examined closely.
