Multiple animals die after fire at Tucson animal sanctuary

TUCSON, Ariz. — Many animals have died after a fire broke out at a Tucson home that operated an animal sanctuary.

The Northwest Fire District responded Friday night to reports of smoke in the home. It took 22 firefighters more than 20 minutes to extinguish the fire.

The homeowner operated a wildlife sanctuary and refuge from the house. Dozens of animals including rabbits, owls, falcons, raccoons and her own pets lived at the home. Many of the animals were in areas that caught fire and died.

Firefighters were able to save some animals and volunteers from rescue groups transported them to another location.
