BEL AIR, Md. — The Office of the State Fire Marshal is investigating a house fire that claimed the life of two dogs in Bel Air.
Officials say fire crews from the Abingdon Fire Company were called to a home at 2516 Gladstone Court on Sunday evening after a neighbor noticed the home was in flames. It took a crew of 30 firefighters to extinguish the fire in about 20 minutes after they arrived at the scene.
Although there were no reported injuries as a result of the fire, two dogs were found dead in the home and a cat suffered severe smoke inhalation. Fire officials say the residents of the home were not there at the time of the fire.
It was reported that the fire started in the bedroom of the home, but it is still unknown what caused it.
The Office of the State Fire Marshall say this is an ongoing investigation.
