Rusty Garrett here with the weekend outlook: Saturday will be the milder of the two days. Sun and clouds will be the rule with early weekend highs in the mid 80s. Back to the low to mid 90s on Sunday!
DALLAS (June 24, 2014) More than 50 dogs that were living in a single-story home in Dallas died early Tuesday in a fire, officials said.
A total of more than 70 dogs were in the home when the fire started shortly before 4 a.m. Tuesday, authorities say.
First responders used oxygen to revive many of the rescued dogs and animal control officers spent the morning rounding up the dogs that escaped on their own.
A married couple living at the home was treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
Dallas Animal Services manager Jody Jones says city ordinance dictates that no more than six dogs are allowed on a half-acre property.
As many as eight are allowed for a larger lot.
Authorities say the fire was caused by an electrical short in a window-mounted air-conditioning unit.
