HANOVER, Pa. - Volunteers at an exotic animal rescue in Adams County are still looking for a monkey that got loose and ran away during a fire that destroyed the facility.
The East Coast Exotic Animal Rescue in Adams County burned down early Saturday. Two residents escaped, and most of the animals were saved from the fire. Two cats died.
A capuchin monkey named Bug escaped from his carrier during the rescue and ran into the woods. He remains missing.
"He's special to us, and finding him is our number one priority," said Melissa Bishop, a rescue volunteer.
The fire was likely caused by a wireless router that shorted out and ignited some papers, said Dep. Chief Adam Jacobs, Fairfield Fire Company.
