A two-alarm blaze that damaged two Pacifica homes Tuesday afternoon also displaced seven people, including an infant, according to fire officials with the North County Fire Authority.

At about 3:15 p.m., firefighters responded to the blaze at 139 Catalina Ave. There, firefighters found heavy smoke coming from the back of a two-story home.

Firefighters then noticed that the blaze had extended to the house next door at 135 Catalina Ave., according to fire officials.

Firefighters first searched the home at 139 Catalina Ave. and rescued two dogs, both which suffered from smoke inhalation. Emergency crews had to administer oxygen to one of the dogs and successfully resuscitated it at the scene.

Firefighters were eventually able to contain the blaze at 139 Catalina Ave. to the home's rear upper and lower rooms. The rest of the home, however, sustained smoke damage.

Firefighters also contained the blaze at the home next door to a rear enclosed patio, fire officials said.

The four people who lived at 139 Catalina Ave. were displaced, but were able to make arrangements for temporary housing. The two people and infant who lived at 135 Catalina Ave. were also displaced.

No injuries were reported in the fire, according to fire officials.

A cause for the blaze remains under investigation.
