Fire Kills 8 Pets At Macomb County Mobile Home

HARRISON TOWNSHIP (AP) – Eight pets have died at a Macomb County mobile home in a fire that may have been caused by lamps used to grow medical marijuana.

Harrison Township fire battalion chief Kevin Seehase says the lamps use a lot of power. Christine Bartoli says the home began filling with smoke around 9:15 a.m. Sunday. She and companion Edward Hanmer escaped without taking anything with them.

The Macomb Daily says the couple lost three dogs, two cats and three ferrets. One of the dogs was taken to a clinic but didn’t survive.

The floor of the mobile home collapsed as firefighters worked the scene. The home was declared a total loss.
