COLUMBUS -- A newborn litter of kittens were killed Saturday afternoon. Investigators say they were set on fire near a back yard patio in the North Linden neighborhood.
Five kittens, each under two weeks old were set on fire. Investigators are unclear what, if any, accelerant was used. The mother cat escaped with minor burns.
Multiple people were living at the home and caring for the cats. Investigators say the fire could have been worse since it was set close to a live natural gas pipe.
