OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Firefighters called to a house fire in south-central Omaha found more than two dozen of animals - including seven turkeys.

Television station KETV reports that firefighters were called to the house at Orchard Avenue and 54th Street around 9:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Firefighters say no people were inside at the time, but crews found 15 chickens, three dogs, a cat and the turkeys. Firefighters say four chickens died in the fire.

Crews were able to extinguish the fire shortly after arriving.

Officials say the homeowner had a permit for all the animals.

The Nebraska Humane Society says the surviving animals were removed from the home for safekeeping.
