The Polson Fire Department reports that nine dogs died after being caught in a house fire on Saturday on the 500 block of 10th Avenue West in Polson.

According to Polson Assistant Fire Chief Terry Gembala, the couple escaped the house safely and left a door open in hopes their pets would do the same.
