Fire destroys pet crematorium in Westbrook


Fire crews fought a challenging fire Saturday night after flames tore through a pet crematorium next to dog kennels.

The fire broke out on Horse Hill Road.

Fire crews needed to bring in water from surrounding areas to help fight the flames at the pet crematorium on the property of Silver Trails, a dog and cat boarding business.

Firefighters told Eyewitness News that the fire broke out at one of the two crematoriums on site.

Crews called the fire "very challenging" due to lack of water.

No one was hurt in the fire, and the animals at the boarding facility are OK.

Fire crews said the crematorium building is a total loss.

The fire marshal is investigating what caused the blaze.
