A puppy is dead and two cats are missing after a two-alarm fire on Spring Street in New Haven.
A male resident was home when a fire broke out toward the back of a home at 166 Spring Street, but he got out safely, according to Rick Fontana, New Haven's emergency management director.
A puppy was killed in the blaze and two cats are missing from the home.
The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection listed the fire danger for today as high because fuels are dry and can burn readily.
No additional information was immediately available.
