Brimfield pet store fire that killed birds and a cat under investigation

BRIMFIELD – The cause of a fire that killed several birds and a cat at a Route 43 pet store last week is still under investigation, Deputy Fire Chief Ron Goodspeed said on Tuesday.

Goodspeed said the Sky Kings Aviary fire at 5005 Route 43 killed a cat and, he said, six birds. No humans were injured and no other animals were in the business, he said.

The fire was reported around 11:30 p.m. on February 9.

“It was badly damaged on the first floor,” Goodspeed said. “The fire, the smoke and of course the extinguishing water. “

Goodspeed said the Kent, Rootstown and Suffield Fire Departments also responded and firefighters cleared the scene shortly after 2 a.m.

According to Kings of Heaven Facebook page, the pet store specializes in birds. The only post on the page, however, is a profile photo posted in 2015 and a post sent via Facebook asking for comment late Tuesday morning had not been answered by late afternoon.

Goodspeed said the business is located in a house which Portage County property records show was built in 1930. Goodspeed said the house is only used as a business and no one lives there and that no one was present the night of the fire. He said he was unsure if Sky Kings was still operating as a business at the time of the fire.
