Firefighters responded to a fire in Bridgeport early Friday morning.
An investigation was underway after the fire marshal in Bridgeport found what officials said was a possible “puppy mill” while responding to investigate a fire on Brooks Street, but determined that it was a structure that housed the family pets and it was not a puppy mill.
Officials said firefighters responded around 4:11 a.m. after receiving a 911 call reporting a fire in the back of a home on Brooks Street and they quickly extinguished fire in a garage.
The fire marshal also responded and asked for help from Bridgeport Animal Control Unit.
