DALLAS More than 50 dogs were killed and two people injured when a fire swept through a Dallas house on Tuesday, fire officials said.
"It is unknown why so many dogs were in one home, but reportedly there were more than 70," said Dallas Fire-Rescue spokesman Jason Evans.
The homeowners, a husband and wife, were transported to a hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, fire officials said.
The surviving dogs have been turned over to animal control and were being treated for injuries, they said.
