MUSKEGON, Mich. (WOOD) — Two people were injured and a dog was killed in a fire at a Muskegon home on Wednesday.
The fire broke out at a house on Monroe Avenue near 3rd Street that had been divided into multiple units.
Firefighters at the scene said residents were bringing a moped into one of the units that may have been dripping fuel, which ignited the fire. The apartment where the fire sparked was destroyed.
A 31-year-old man and 33-year-old woman who lived at the property both suffered burns and smoke inhalation. It wasn’t immediately clear how serious their injuries were.
Firefighters noticed seven puppies in a cage in the house and rescued them, giving them oxygen. All the puppies will be OK. One adult dog survived, while another did not.
