At 3:45am PF&R crews responded to a house fire at 2210 N. Rosa Parks Way. A resident there woke up to hearing "crackling" sounds and realized there was a fire in the home. After waking the two other residents, all were able to exit safely. When firefighters arrived they reported that one cat was still inside the home. As the first crews arrived they found heavy fire and smoke from the front of the home and began firefighting efforts. Fire burned through a power line to the home which fell and made contact with one of the fire engines being used to supply water to the firefighters. This engine had to be repositioned during a very critical period so as to avoid serious injury to the crews on scene.
One cat was pulled from the home and given oxygen at the scene but was later pronounced dead. Tw
