Firefighters saved five cats caught in a house fire in Fair Oaks on Wednesday.
Crews responded to a call about smoke coming from a house on Kifisia Way, near Greenback Lane, shortly after noon. While the house appeared to be vacant, neighbors told firefighters there were cats inside.
Not only were the felines rescued, but according to Sacramento Metro Fire, $300,000 in potential damage was averted. Firefighters believe something cooking that was left unattended caused the fire.
