More than 30 dogs were rescued from a fire at what authorities in South Florida called a hoarder house.

Broward Sheriff's Office Fire Rescue responded to a house fire that was reported just before 10:00 p.m. in the 200 block of Southeast Park Street Thursday in Dania Beach, north of Miami. Neighbors say that the resident is a woman who is about 45-years-old and would take in animals regularly, because she loves animals.

Firefighters went inside the home but were obstructed by the many items inside. The rescue team also kept finding dogs, many of whom were unconscious.  

In all, 34 dogs were found and all but one survived. 

Five dogs were listed in critical condition at the VCA Hollywood Animal Hospital. No one was home at the time of the fire.

It is not known is the homeowner will face any charges.
