4 Dogs Die In Holmdel House Fire

HOLMDEL, N.J. (AP) — Authorities say a Thanksgiving Day fire killed four dogs and severely damaged a home in central New Jersey.

No one was in the Holmdel home when the fire broke out around 1:30 p.m. Thursday.

The owner later returned to the house in the Monmouth County community to find that his two Labrador retrievers and two boxers had died.

Police say the cause of the fire remains under investigation, although officials are centering on the kitchen as the likely area where it began.

Authorities say flames burst through the roof, and much of the front of the home was destroyed.

        You’re an ass and the worst part of humans. These people just lost their home and their dogs – how inconsiderate you are. This isn’t about you or what you like and what you don’t like. Grow up, get a job, and go back to school to learn how to spell and use proper grammar.

    R U SERIOUS.. Poor Dogs. Who Cares. is this the only bad news that happen Yesterday. Cause if it was It was a GREAT!! day(for Us Humans).I was talking to the Dog Next to me who was Reading this Article. He said he didn’t know them but he was going to their Funeral to pay his Respects and Check the Cute Cats coming there too. what Next Obituaries for Dog n Cats in the New Papers. Don’t get me Wrong I Love Animals Cats N Dogs, Fish (yum) Turtles, Chickens (Super Yummy) whatever but they are what they are Animals. Not Humans. They don’t Mow my Lawn, Wash My Dishes Cook my Food or Pay My Bills. They Just Eat, Sleep and Shyt..they Probably don’t like half of their Owners anyway, they only suck up for Food. Little Begging Ass Animals..

    Must have been a slow day at the press room. This happens when you keep you pets locked in the house . This story must have been writen by the same person who did the article about our cats and dogs were gitting fat.

    1. All4TheAnimals says:

      Most responsible people keep their pets in the house when they’re not home and cannot supervise them. We responsible folk don’t allow our dogs to roam, or leave them in the yard, the same as we keep our toddlers in the house and not roam the neighborhood.

      The guy was apparently away for part of the day spending Thanksgiving with friends or family – or both. It’s a terrible tragedy and my heart goes out to him. This story didn’t even warrant any posts – why those two idiots got into a personal war up top I’ll never know except they’re selfish morons.

      The majority of the posts here were made by morons. Is that the audience that CBS now attracts to their online service? Too bad.
