Three dogs killed in garage fire in South Bend


Three dogs were killed when they became trapped in a garage fire Monday night in South Bend.

St. Joseph County Fire Dept. received the call of a fire on the 20700 block of Roycroft Dr. shortly after 11:00pm. With the assistance of several neighboring departments, it took them 45 minutes to control the blaze that completely destroyed the garage and melted some of the vinyl siding of the house beside it.

While no people were injured, County authorities confirm the dogs died in the fire. Roycroft Dr. was blocked off while crews were present.
