It is unclear what caused a fire that killed two family pets in Bridgewater Wednesday morning, Bridgwater Deputy Fire Chief Tom Levy said.

At 5:55 a.m., the Bridge­water Fire Department received a 911 call for a structure fire at 10 Pine St. The blaze ­enveloped a 60-foot construction trailer before spreading to two sheds and a 2½-story wood frame two-car garage.

Two family dogs perished in the two-alarm blaze. Farm animals on the premises were not injured.

The trailer, sheds, and ­garage, all roughly 15 feet apart from each other, were all a total loss in the blaze, Levy said, with more than $150,000 in damage.

The garage was not ­attached to the house, which sustained only minor heat damage, Levy said.

The fire appears to have started near the trailer, which apparently was being used for agricultural purposes like egg storage, Levy said.

The cause of the fire is ­under investigation, though it does not appear to be suspicious.
