Several dogs were severely burned when their outside kennels, at a residence in south Texas, caught fire. The devastating incident was recounted to followers of the Dallas Dog – Rescue.Rehab.Reform Facebook page:
We have a MAJOR EMERGENCY This home in south Texas with several dogs in outside kennels caught fire with the DOGS INSIDE! There are over 20 dogs on the premises which we will continue to help with, but we removed the most severe cases to get them immediate medical care!!!
Describing what likely happened to cause the horrible blaze:
The kennels caught fire the temperatures have been freezing and they are assuming it was an electrical fire after rats chewed through the cords
The rescue group provided an update on Friday, writing:
The Texas 5, as many are now calling them, are struggling with their burns. Fortunately their owner has been able to be on call to comfort them and calm them so the vets can manage their issues. They are scared and frightened which is making it difficult to treat them.
All of the dogs had come from the streets of SOUTH TEXAS. Just as an FYI SOUTH TEXAS streets are like a WAR ZONE for stray dogs. An animal lover nightmare trying to “SAVE THEM ALL”. On the outside looking in it is easy to judge and see the horror this property brings!
Detailing how the fire started after learning more from the dogs’ owners:
An unfortunate tragedy occurred when there appeared to be an electrical fire from a heat lamp used to alleviate the chill that occurred in South Texas this past week. Apparently one of the dogs had maneuvered a heat lamp and it fell starting the fire.
The wife looked outside to see the kennels full of smoke and screamed the dogs are on fire the husband ran into the flames not thinking of himself to save the dogs by the time he got out there they were engulfed in flames 🔥 he rushed in to save the dogs.
The plastic tarps and pine chips were like a “PERFECT STORM” when it ignited and the dogs were caught underneath as the plastic tarps fell and landed on them catching them on fire. The owner raced out to open the kennels and put out the flames. Many other dogs on the property were spared, but the smoke from the plastic is of concern.
