Extensive damage to a home following a fire in Essa Township.

According to a social media post by the OPP, two family dogs died as a result of the blaze, which happened early Monday morning at a residence on Side Road 30.

In an email to Barrie 360, Essa Fire Chief Doug Burgin said the residence was set up as two apartments.

"Two occupants in basement apartment alerted by smoke alarms and got out without injury," Burgin said.

 He added that damage is pegged at $600,000.
