OREGON CITY, Ore. (AP) – Authorities say one person was injured and a family dog was killed in an Oregon City house fire that was intentionally set.

Clackamas Fire District No. 1 says the person was taken to a hospital to treat an injury described as minor. Three people escaped the home before rescuers arrived early Saturday to find black smoke escaping the open front door.

Fire officials did not say who set fire to the front of the house. The fire department and Oregon State Police are investigating.
