HUNTINGTOWN, Md. (AP) — Fire officials say more than 100 dogs have been rescued from a breeder's burning home in rural southern Maryland.

Jonathan Riffe, chief of the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department, says four dogs died in the blaze in Calvert County. No people were injured.

Riffe says more than 50 firefighters helped rescue a total of 129 animals from the house. In all, Riffe says there are more than 600 animals on the property.

The dogs included pit bulls, Rottweilers and Chihuahuas.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
