(Orange County Sheriff's Office, Florida)A fire official said at a news conference on Thursday that rescue attempts were hampered by a roof collapsing inside the building, which made "access to all the animals ... kind of difficult." The official said crews were able to get to the dogs quickly because of where they are housed inside the facility. headtopics.com
"They keep them separate," the official said about the dogs and the cats. "So, just where the fire was and where the animals were, the dogs were in an area where the fire hadn't really reached yet."At one point, the fire got so overwhelming that crews had to retreat and "attack it from our aerial streams," the official told reporters.
