A neighbor made the 911 call at 9:30 a.m. and firefighters from Liberty, Union, Pooletown and Rockwell Rural were quickly after dispatched.
Firefighters got the dogs out and a rabbit, Trexler said, adding there were several other dogs in kennels in the back yard. No animals were injured as a result of the fire.
