Up to 30 puppies killed in Florida pet store fire

Investigators say a fire swept through a Miami strip mall killing as many as 30 puppies in a pet store.

Miami's NBC6 reports the fire broke out late Wednesday at a shopping center on Northwest 7th Street. Several businesses were destroyed.

Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll told NBC6 several 911 calls reported smoke coming from a building about 10 p.m. Wednesday. When fire crews arrived, flames were coming from the attic of the building. He says it took about 40 firefighters more than an hour to put out.

Authorities say there are seven businesses in the strip mall.

No further details were immediately available.
