Pets Perish in New Bedford Fire

New Bedford Fire Dept

All six tenants are safe, but several pets did not escape a fire on Campbell Street in New Bedford Saturday night.

Firefighters arrived at 123 Campbell Street around 6:30pm Saturday evening to see flames erupting from the second floor of the three story home. In addition to the flames and heavy smoke, firefighters struggled to keep tenants concerned over their pets out of the home.

District Fire Chief James Fortin tells WBSM News a third floor tenant was trapped for a time, but firefighters were able to rescue her by use of a ladder truck.

No injuries were reported, but a dog and a bird were not able to escape the smoke and flames.

The fire dealt plenty of damage to the home, with repairs estimated at $25,000. Fortin says it appears the fire started on the second floor, but the exact cause is under investigation.
