FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The family of a Fargo soldier who suffered a brain injury in Iraq has lost their home to fire.

No one was hurt, but the Wednesday night blaze at the home of the Rusty Ouart family killed the family's dog. Friend Melissa Seitz says the family is in shock.

Ouart was inspired to enlist in the National Guard after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The former firefighter was wounded in Iraq in a 2008 mortar attack.

The cause of the house fire was not immediately determined.
