PALM COAST, Fla. – A man, his daughter and their six dogs were rescued from a house fire in Palm Coast on Tuesday morning.

The man was repairing a refrigerator in the garage of the two-story home on Llach Court when the appliance caught fire.

He was unable to extinguish the flames and ran inside to get his daughter and call 911.

Flagler County Fire Rescue arrived at the scene and contained the fire to the garage.  There was smoke damage throughout the house.

"We transported the father and his daughter by ambulance to Florida Hospital Flagler," Flagler County Fire Rescue Chief Don Petito said. "We were able to revive all of the dogs with oxygen masks made specifically for household pets."

A couple of the dogs were just puppies.

Information about the father and daughter's conditions was not immediately available.

The State Fire Marshal was called to investigate.
