Firefighters Rescue Cat

Portland Firefighters responded to a fully involved kitchen fire in a manufactured home in Southeast Portland Monday afternoon. 

The fire was put out quickly despite some initial difficulty with narrow entrances and cramped streets for setting up firefighting equipment.

During the course of the operation crews also found a cat inside, carried it out to safety and then applied oxygen from equipment specially designed for animal rescue. Last reports were that the cat was doing well.

No other occupants were inside the home at the time of the fire. No injuries were reported.

Fire investigators have not released a cause.
