AUSTIN (KRLD) - It just wanted some pizza. A fire at a home in Austin this week is being blamed on a dog's appetite for pie.

Firefighters said an overheated stove caused a small fire, and investigators later determined it was the pup's fault, tweeting that it inadvertently turned on the stove in "pursuit of pizza." 

It did about $1,000 in damage, but the dog wasn't hurt.

We don't know its name and we don't know if it ever got the pizza.
