The Gilbert facility was cleared for reopening at about 10:30 a.m. The Gilbert Fire and Rescue Department said there was no longer a hazard but that officials were continuing to investigate. Company spokesman Curtis Krueger said the sick and injured pets in the hospital - 14 dogs and 1 cat - apparently suffered no ill effects from the incident.
