2 Dogs Killed in Wicomico Co. Kennel Fire

Posted: Updated:

PITTSVILLE, Md.- Authorities are investigating an early Tuesday morning fire at a Wicomico County kennel that claimed the lives of two dogs.

The Maryland State Fire Marshal's Office reports that the blaze broke out shortly before 3 a.m., at a 10- by 18-foot wooden dog kennel located at 6671 Friendship Road in Pittsville.

It took 35 firefighters from the Pittsville, Willards and Powellville fire companies approximately five minutes to get the fire under control. Two English bulldogs died in the fire but four other dogs inside the kennel survived.

The fire caused an estimated $9,500 in damage to the kennel and $5,000 in damage to its contents, investigators said.

The cause of the fire and its area of origin remain under investigation. Anyone with additional information is asked to call the State Fire Marshal Lower Eastern Regional Office at (410) 713-3780.
