A Long Island home packed with dozens of cats and dogs went up in flames Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters rushed to the home in Selden, but it was too late to save many of the pets. They were able to rescue three puppies and a kitten, administering oxygen to help clear their lungs of smoke.

The home's owner escaped unharmed.

It is not yet known how many animals perished.

The cause of the fire and conditions of the home are currently under investigation.
