Dogs die in Perham home fire

Two dogs died in a fire that destroyed a trailer home on Timberlane Drive in Perham Friday evening.

When local fire departments arrived, fire had already fully engulfed the trailer home, according to the Otter Tail County Sheriff's Office. The trailer is a complete loss.

The cause of the fire is believed to have originated in the kitchen, according to Perham Fire Chief Mark Schmidt. The Sheriff's Office stated that a dog could also somehow have been involved in starting the fire, but did not specify its role.

Perham Fire Department, along with New York Mills and Vergas fire departments were paged to the fire.
