TURNER, Maine (AP) — Officials say several puppies are feared lost after a fire at a Maine dog-breeding business.
The blaze at Varney’s Labs in Turner was reported late Monday night.
Firefighters from several communities helped battle the blaze in a barn that housed a complex of kennels.
The business’s owner tells the Sun Journal, that most of the dogs were able to get out, but four or five 5-month-old dogs probably didn’t make it out.
There was no immediate word on a cause.
According to its website, Varney’s breeds and sells Labrador retrievers. It has been in business since 1998.
