Bainbridge Township house fire claims lives of two dogs, two cats


BAINBRIDGE TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WJW) — Two golden retrievers and two cats are dead after a house fire in Bainbridge Township Thursday.

A source close to the family confirms to FOX 8 that the remains of dogs, who were missing after the fire, were found.

Bainbridge Township Fire Department Assistant Chief Bill Lovell says that it’s very unlikely anything could have survived the superheated gaseous smoke and flames that were throughout the home on 9620 Crackle Road. He says once heat causes the windows to break, conditions are already “unsurvivable.”

“It is amazing that the two occupants were able to escape out a second floor window before being overcome by smoke,” Lovell said. “It is very sad. There was a pig, however, outside of the house that did survive and is being cared for.”

There are no other injuries reported at this time.
