Two leopards and several monkeys have reportedly burned to death after a massive fire broke out at the Mtahleb Wildlife Park this morning. 

However, firefighters managed to rescue some tigers, lions, bears and a puma after they ran into a pool. These animals will be treated wth opium and transported to a secure location.

The fire has been completely extinguished now, but the damage to the zoo is said to be extensive – the entire park is destroyed, as is the nearby home of the family who owns it. 

According to the Times of Malta, police investigators suspect the fire broke out after a gas cylinder exploded.
