BRISTOL, N.H. (AP) — Police in a New Hampshire town are investigating the death of three dozen dogs killed in two separate fires at the same kennel.
WMUR-TV reports police in Bristol said the fires broke out three weeks apart at a kennel where German Shepherds are bred.
Police say three adult dogs and 26 puppies were killed in a fire Wednesday, which may have been caused by a heat lamp.
Authorities say two adult dogs and five newborn puppies were killed in a fire at the same location three weeks ago. They said a knocked-over heat lamp caused that fire and destroyed a home.
Police say they executed a search warrant Wednesday and found nine dogs that were still alive. The name of the kennel was not immediately available.
No charges have been filed.
