The zoo says the fire in the critter corner building of its encounters area began before 4:30 a.m. Saturday.

Sprinklers extinguished the fire in 35 minutes but not before it killed three turtles, two birds, an armadillo, a snake and other animals. Some birds, reptiles, and rodents are being treated at the zoo's hospital.

The cause remains under investigation.
