WOODBINE, Ky. (AP) -- A fire official says about a dozen cats and dogs have died in a fire at a Whitley County animal shelter.
Larry Centers, a battalion chief with the Oak Grove volunteer fire department, said some animals were rescued during the fire on Friday night at the Knox-Whitley Animal Shelter.
However, Centers estimated that about four dogs and 10 cats died in the blaze. Centers says part of the building's roof caved in and firefighters were unable to reach some of the animals.
The shelter's web site lists about 25 dogs and cats that had been up for adoption.
Centers says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
