Seven puppies and their mother were rescued from a house fire in Bethlehem. Sadly, one puppy died. The homeowner said that the puppy that died was her favorite.

Fire investigators say they got a call around 5:45 Wednesday evening about a basement fire. The fire was on 489 Orchard St. Investigators say there was a thick, heavy smoke on the left side of the house and the homeowner told them the dogs were trapped in a room on the right side of the house.

Multiple crews from several agencies arrived on the scene to fight the fire, and rescue the puppies and their mother.

Fire Chief Dan Ryan Jr. said that the homeowner would not be able to stay in her Wednesday night due to smoke.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
