Caught a few minutes of news today and heard this story. Thanks to an early report of smoke to CFD, everyone residing in the building made it out alive. Great news -- but it didn't end there.
One man who got himself out, but couldn't get his two cats to come out, asked a firefighter about his two cats still inside. That firefighter went in and rescued those two cats. Really impressed by that kind of spirit!
