A family of furry friends were rescued from a Hamilton Township home fire on Tuesday night. The Mays Landing Fire Department responded to a fire in a second floor bedroom of a home on Cowen Court in Oakcrest Estates just after 6:30 p.m. The home was unoccupied, except for the family pets, including a litter of puppies. The dogs were rescued without harm by firemen. The dogs and their owners will be displaced until the home is repaired. No human injuries were reported and the cause of the question is under investigation.
