POLK COUNTY, Texas (CNN/KPRC) - A Texas man says he set the fire in an effort to save the dogs lives, but some people disagree.
The man says he was trying to save the puppies from being attacked by wild dogs, so he set a fire near the culvert where they were stuck, but one neighbor says he set fire to both sides.
One nearby neighbor now owns one of the puppies and she calls him "smokey." The other dog was taken to a local SPCA and was treated for burns on his stomach and smoke inhalation.
The man who set the fire has not been charged with any crime.
