FRUITLAND, Idaho - A southwestern Idaho couple says 14 dachshunds have died in a house fire in Fruitland.

Karen and Robert McCombs operate Dachshund Idaho Rescue.

They tell the Idaho Statesman (http://bit.ly/KK0vcZ) the fire Saturday afternoon started on the front porch of the single-wide trailer they were renting and spread so fast they couldn't get it under control.

They and their 16-year-old son were able to escape and save three dachshunds and an Akita.

The American Red Cross provided vouchers for three nights at a nearby motel.
