A home in Owen Sound's east end suffered extensive damage after a blaze Wednesday afternoon. 

Owen Sound Fire Department responded to 8th Ave East near 8th Street at around 3pm with assistance from Intertownship fire crews, Grey County Paramedics and Owen Sound Police Service. 

Neighbours first reported spotting smoke and within a few minutes the entire rear of the home was fully engulfed in flames. 

A quick acting neighbour realizing the owners weren't home, opened the front door and saved the family's dog. 

There were no injuries.
