A couple say they are “so overwhelmed” with the support they have received after a fire ripped through their kennels, killing 10 dogs. 

Since the blaze last month, over £600 has been raised to help rebuild Black Horse Farm Kennels off the A10 in Littleport. 

The fundraiser, set up by a family friend, aims to raise the £1,000 needed to rebuild the business. 

Chelsea Rowell, kennel owner, said “we don’t really know how to possibly thank people.

“Other than to say me and the husband are so overwhelmed by the support we have received from countless people who have donated and offered their services, businesses and individuals.” 

Chelsea’s husband Luke sustained burns to his face and feet after tackling the fire, where three dogs were saved.
