68 dogs found after fire reported at Staten Island home
STATEN ISLAND -- Sixty-eight dogs have been rescued from a blaze in a New York City home.
Fire officials say the fire in the two-story house in Staten Island was reported on Friday evening. It was extinguished in about a half hour.
No injuries were reported.
Officials say the owner of the single-family home was a hoarder who collected small-breed dogs as well as trash. Some of the animals were kept in a yard next to the house.
Richard Gentles of Animal Care & Control of NYC says the dogs were removed to a shelter. He says a medical team is evaluating them and caring for them.
Fire marshals are investigating the cause of the blaze.
