  • By: Kay Long

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Nine dogs lost their lives in a house fire early Sunday morning at 5998 12th Street North. St. Petersburg Fire Lieutenant Joel Granata says the owner of the home was out and came home to find her home in flames.

Granata says there were ten dogs inside the house, and only one made it out of the one story masonry house alive. He also tells ABC Action News the female owner was a hoarder, and that made the fire difficult to put out.

No cause for the fire has been determined yet.

The Red Cross is helping the homeowner find another place to stay.
