Lincoln County Sheriff's Department officials say a Merrill home is a total loss after a fire Saturday afternoon. They say when fire crews arrived, the home was engulfed in flames.

Authorities say the residents were not home at the time, but two dogs and a kitten were inside. They say the dogs are safe, but the kitten has not been found.

Officials say during the fire, one of the residents and a family member were arrested for disorderly conduct and obstructing emergency personnel. They say the two refused to obey orders on the scene and interfered with the emergency crews.
