Fruitport Township public safety director Brian Michelli said the cause of the fire is still undetermined, but an estimated 30 dogs died. He said the department does know the area of where the first started.

“On the north end of the building was a small office, also a small mechanical area that housed a water heater, pellet stove, electrical systems, so we have the area origin near that end of the building," said Michelli.

Michelli said they've ruled out arson in the case. He said the department will leave it up to the kennel's insurance company to investigate further and figure out the cause of the fire.
