BOCA RATON – Local firefighters rescued several cats from a recent structure fire at 7200 NW 2nd Avenue.

Public Information Officer Frank Correggio said emergency dispatchers received the 911 call from the homeowner who noticed flames in her kitchen.

Upon arrival, firefighters found heavy smoke and intense flames coming from the kitchen area.  Crews immediately began to fight the fire and search the home for the owner’s cats.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze and rescued several cats that were treated for smoke inhalation.  Crews used special pet oxygen masks that were donated by the Dog Club of Boca Raton.

The owner of the home was treated for smoke inhalation and transported to Boca Raton Regional Hospital in stable condition for further evaluation.  The Red Cross was on hand to assist the displaced homeowner and her pets.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the State Fire Marshal.  Correggio said fire officials estimate damage at $35,000.
