Over 50 dogs were rescued from a Clarksville, Tennessee, house where a fire broke out on Saturday night. According to the Leaf Chronicle, the residence may have been a puppy mill operation, or a hoarding situation.

Around 7:45 p.m., Clarksville Fire Rescue responded to the residence on East Bel Air Boulevard – according to WKRN News, the blaze claimed the lives of two adult dogs, two puppies, and six birds. Clarksville Fire Rescue Fire Marshall, Ray Williams, commented on how the deadly fire broke out, “The fire was electrical in nature. It was near and electrical outlet. I don’t know what was actually plugged up at that time, but we did determine that.”

The surviving animals were rounded up and taken to the Montgomery County Animal Care and Control facility. The agency requested help after the huge influx of animals:

Volunteers desperately needed for Sunday, November 27th! Animal Control responded to a house fire this evening and placed 56 animals into protective custody. Unfortunately 10 animals perished in the fire. We need volunteers to assist in cleaning and feeding the shelter animals tomorrow, while the shelter staff takes care of all the protective custody animals. As always, we appreciate your support!

The owner of the dogs has denied that a breeding operation was taking place in the home – no charges have been filed but the situation remains under investigation.
