Firefighters rescued quite a few cats and canines from a burning property Wednesday north of Brighton, but at the very least three other animals had been killed.
Five space fireplace departments responded to the late-early morning blaze on South Maxfield Road.
Crews encountered major hearth in section of the property and smoke all through the composition, said Rick Boisvert, the fireplace marshal for Brighton Region Hearth Authority.
They managed to rescue four cats and two puppies, but a few canine died and a single cat was lacking, he mentioned. There were being no injuries to inhabitants or firefighters.
A resident was in the basement when a smoke alarm alerted him to the fire, Boisvert said. The cause remained less than investigation, he reported.
Fireplace crews ended up on the scene for a lot more than 3 several hours.
Hartland Deerfield Fireplace Authority was in the beginning dispatched, though the household was later on decided to be in the Brighton department’s company place, Boisvert stated.
The Inexperienced Oak Township, Highland Township and Howell departments also responded via mutual help, he said.
