(ROSELAND) - Police say 14 dogs died after air conditioning failed in the truck they were housed in for a dog show in northern Indiana.

St. Joseph County police Lt. William Redman says the dogs were discovered about 6:20 p.m. Friday outside a hotel in Roseland, just north of South Bend. He says the truck was equipped with air conditioning in the cargo area but that an electrical circuit breaker cut the power. Redman says police do not know what triggered the circuit breaker.

The high was 86 degrees in South Bend on Friday.

Redman says the truck belonged to Lakesyde Kennels and Handling of Wellington, Ohio.

The Humane Society of South Bend is investigating the deaths.
