A Boothbay Harbor home was destroyed by fire on Christmas night, but authorities said all of the residents made it out safely.

Several family pets, however, perished in the blaze.

Crews arrived at the scene on Lakeview Road at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday to find the home engulfed in flames.

The blaze was brought under control quickly, but not before the home was destroyed.

Several nearby fire departments helped battle the blaze.

The cause remains under investigation.
