2 dogs perish in Belleville apartment fire
One woman lost her whole apartment in a Belleville fire that claimed the lives of two pet dogs Friday.
Jenny Ordinola lost nearly everything she owns after fire destroyed her home at 27 Church Terrace. All of the 14-unit apartment building's residents escaped unharmed.
Sadly, fire officials say Ordinola's two dogs, a Yorkie and a Shih Tzsu, died due to smoke inhalation. Authorities say all of the damage was likely the result of an accidental electrical fire.
"There's a lot of damage there," says Capt. Joe Troise, of the Belleville Fire Department.
Ordinola's sister, Cathy, says Jenny will now move in with her.
"Everything's wet, everything's burned, everything's gone," says Cathy Ordinola.
