Ahh I'm so sorry to hear that...The poor animals!

Omg...puppies were roasted to death :-(

That must of been one hell of a fire to burn up all the aquariums too...

Normally the glass would just crack and put out a lot of the fire...

Sounds kinda fishy to me...

On the local news they said the fire was electrical. Possibly faulty or improperly set up Christmas decorations.

It is very sad. They interviewed a few employees that arrived at the scene. Said they had brought in extra puppies for Christmas and were holding many specially ordered animals for Christmas. They were all crying and said they felt worse for the owners who are devestated.

You can probably read about it on www.news12.com

I'm very sorry to hear this
It's heartbreaking because you know the animals couldn't do anything to get to safety on their own.

I hate to hear about this - I am surprised that sprinklers were not installed that could have helped. It is a real nightmare to think about. I'll echo Menagerie:

I'm so sorry to hear about this too -- what a tragedy, and so close to Christmas too...

Hopefully other pet stores in the area will double-check their smoke alarms and sprinkler systems.
