    Veterinarians treating three young puppies rescued from a fire in a Queens apartment building are searching for the dogs' owner. 

    The young pit bulls were taken from a sixth-floor unit of the Pomonok Houses apartment complex at 65-24 Parsons Blvd. when firefighters responded to a fire there Tuesday afternoon, officials said.

    There were several puppies inside the burning building, and some died in the fire, according to FDNY officials. Three others were rescued, including a two-month-old female American pit bull terrier being treated at BluePearl Veterinary Partners center in Queens. 

    That puppy had its fur singed and is being treated for smoke inhalation.

    BluePearl said its will attempt to find the puppy a home if its owner doesn't come forward by the time medical treatment is completed.

    The other two rescued pups are being treated at another local animal hospital.
