A Duluth home is left with $80,000 in damage after a Friday morning fire.

Firefighters responded to the home on the 400 block of Stroll Avenue in the Duluth Heights neighborhood just before 9:00 a.m.

Upon arrival they said they found heavy smoke coming from the roof and back of the single-story, single-family house.

Firefighters entered the home and found the fire in the kitchen. They also cut a hole in the roof to let the heat and smoke escape.

No one was at home at the time of the blaze, and a dog in the basement was not injured.

Authorities are investigating the cause.
