TOWNSHIP OF NESSEL, Minnesota — A K9 officer and two other dogs were killed in a house fire that occurred in Chisago County on Monday afternoon.
The county sheriff’s office said response agencies arrived at the home to find it completely engulfed in flames. The accommodation belongs to a deputy of the department.
The family was not home, but the deputy’s K9 partner, Kyro, and two other dogs were inside the house when it caught fire.
The department reported “with extreme sadness” that none of those three dogs survived the fire.
Authorities reported that the MP and his family lost everything in the fire. They set up a GoFundMe for the Fischer family in association with the Chisago County Sheriff’s Office Foundation.
“We are forever grateful for the service of Deputy K9 Kyro and he will not be forgotten,” the department concluded.
