A family-owned beagle died in a fire at a two-family home at 274 Nassau Ave. in Kenmore early this evening.

The fire, called in about 5:45 p.m., began on the second floor and spread to the eaves and attic before it was put out by Kenmore firefighters.

The damage has yet to be determined and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.

No people were home at the time of the fire.
