OPA-LOCKA, FLA. (WSVN) – Firefighters in Opa-Locka have extinguished a fire that broke out in the kitchen of a house and two pets came to the rescue.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue units responded to the scene of the fire at the single-family home along the 1100 block of Ahmad Street just after 6:15 p.m. Friday.
“Firefighters have responded adequately. They responded to protocol,” said homeowner Shane Rhodes, “as if they were doing anything. They came in with the snake, they made sure everyone was out, they made sure no one was in, no animals.”
Rhodes said she told the crew that her two cats were still in the house.
Firefighters went in to search and found both cats under a bed.
“They took the animals out. They made sure my daughter was okay,” Rhodes said.
Crews took out the Rhodes cats and gave them oxygen. They were able to bring the animals back to life.
