The dad, Damon Baker, tried to battle the flames with a garden hose, but when he got too close, police tried to pull him away.
When he resisted, officers Tased him.
"Had I been able to stay there a few minutes spraying it down before the fire department got here, we might not have lost all of our animals," Baker said.
The only good news for the family is that police say the dad will not be charged in the Taser incident.
