Firefighters were called after residents of a suburban Houston, TX. neighborhood began to fear black smoke billowing from the sewer in front of their homes. Only when they arrived did responders realize the horrific nature of the fire – a dog had been stuffed in the sewer and lit on fire.

The scorched dog is described by officials as a white pit bull, reports said.

‘It appears the dog was dumped and set on fire,’ Harris County Fire Marshal investigator Scott Schoonover told KHOU.

 Caught on home surveillance, a dark sedan pulled to the side of the road at 10;15am Saturday, according to the station. A man is seen going back and forth between his car and the sewer multiple times before a huge cloud of black smoke began to climb into the sky as he sped away.

Multiple cars drove by while the man loitered on the side of the road four about four minutes, investigators want to talk to those drivers, according to the station.

‘The suspect somehow pushed the dog or dumped the dog into the storm sewer as he was lighting it on fire, and it was on fire inside the sewer,’ Schoonover told the station.

Even more surprising is that a man was walking around the neighborhood the previous night trying to sell a white pit bull, according to the station. He went door to door showing people a picture of a white pit bull on a cell phone and asking if they wanted to buy a dog for $100.

Authorities do not yet have a suspect, but plan to charge him with both arson and animal cruelty charges, according to CultureMap Houston. The incident is being investigated by both the fire marshal’s office and the Houston Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, according to the site.
