19 animals, mostly dogs, were removed from a Sherman home following a fatal fire. Officials are now looking to find homes for the animals. The identity of the person who was killed at the Route 55 West property Sunday in the house fire has not yet been released. An autopsy was expected to be completed yesterday by the state medical examiner’s office. Regional and state animal control have taken custody of the dogs, who were not harmed in the blaze. But Bridgewater First Selectman Curtis Read chairs Regional Animal Control and says some are in very rough shape. He said they dogs were tied up outside in the yard and some are very skinny.
