Crews douse North Park fire, revive two pet cats – The San Diego Union-Tribune

Crews revived two pet cats and doused a kitchen fire in a North Park apartment building late Monday morning, San Diego Fire-Rescue officials said.

The fire was reported about 11:35 a.m. on Park Boulevard north of Cypress Avenue, near North Park’s western border with Hillcrest.

Firefighters searched the apartment for victims, and came across two cats they needed to revive, Battalion Chief Erik Windsor told OnScene TV.

“Fortunately San Diego fire units have veterinary style EMS (emergency medical service) equipment on our units and they were able to use that equipment to revive the cats,” Windsor said.

He said the owner was taking the pets to a veterinarian. No people were injured in the blaze.

Windsor said the crews kept the fire contained to the single apartment.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. Windsor offered up one report he strongly stressed was unconfirmed: a cat may have turned on the stove burner.

Windsor said the resident of the apartment indicated such an incident was possible — the cats previously had played in the kitchen.

MADISON, Wis. — This week’s featured pet is 8-year-old cat Piper.

She starts out shy, but when she gets comfortable, she’s very sweet and affectionate. She enjoys pets and can be a purring machine.

A quiet home with no other animals or children would be best suited for Piper as they may stress her out.
