BRISTOL, N.H. (AP) — Police in a New Hampshire town are investigating after they say three dozen dogs were killed in two separate fires three weeks apart at a kennel.
WMUR-TV reports police in Bristol said the fires broke out at a kennel where German Shepherds are bred.
Police said seven dogs, including two adults and five newborn puppies, were killed in the first fire. They said a knocked-over heat lamp caused that fire and destroyed a home.
Twenty-nine more dogs, including three adults and 26 puppies were killed in a fire Wednesday at the same place. Police said that also may be related to a heat lamp.
Police said they executed a search warrant Wednesday and found nine dogs that were still alive.
No charges have been filed.
