Twelve people and one dog were displaced by a two-alarm fire at a home in Hunters Point early Sunday morning, according to fire officials.

Approximately 70 firefighters responded to the blaze, which was first reported at 4:04 a.m. in the 1500 block of Innes Avenue. A second alarm was called at 4:16 a.m., according to Lt. Jonathan Baxter.

The fire was kept mostly limited to the three-story, single-family structure, but also spread to another building nearby, Baxter said.
