Fire investigators in Lexington are trying to determine what caused a late night house fire on Byars Avenue on Lexington's East side.

Officials say the fire broke out a short time after 11pm Thursday.

Two people and a dog were inside the home when the fire broke out, however one was aided by the help of three neighbors who rushed in the burning home and pulled the man out.

Initial reports from fire officials say the fire may have started in the laundry room.

They believe that the dryer may short circuited causing the fire.

The inside of the home was completely destroyed.
