Firefighters revive cat rescued from burning apartment
Glendale firefighters were able to revive a cat that was pulled from a burning second-story apartment unit Monday.
No one was injured in the blaze that was reported about 10:15 a.m. at the Fort Dearborn Home complex in the 400 block of West Doran Street, said Glendale Battalion Chief Vincent Rifino.
Flames from the second-story unit quickly spread to the apartment above, but firefighters were able to contain the blaze and keep the fire from spreading to other units.
After pulling the unresponsive cat from the second-story apartment, firefighters administered oxygen atop a nearby car and were able to revive the animal as crews continued to battle the blaze, Rifino said.
Residents in the two affected apartments will be displaced, Rifino said, adding that the cause of the fire remained under investigation.
The cat was released to animal control officials for further treatment.
