VIDEO: Puppies rescued in Oakland house fire

OAKLAND (KRON)—More than a dozen dogs were saved after a two-alarm fire broke out inside an home in East Oakland Saturday night, according to the fire department.

It was reported just after 6 p.m. at 108th Avenue and Myers Street inside a two-story home.

Several dogs were found inside the home and firefighters saved 17 puppies, according to fire officials.

Firefighters were not able to save all the dogs, so some of them died in the fire.

The number of dogs that died in the fire is not available at this time.

The dogs that were saved have been given to Oakland Animal Control police officers.

They are now receiving treatment at an animal hospital.

Firefighters contained the fire around 7:10 p.m.

None of the people living inside the home have been displaced from the fire and no one was injured.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
