Fort Worth firefighters use oxygen to save cat following fire

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — North Texas firefighters have used oxygen on a cat that was rescued from a burning house after the residents escaped on their own.

The Fort Worth Fire Department announced Saturday that the pet, named Stubby, survived.

No humans were hurt in Friday’s fire, which heavily damaged a home. Authorities are trying to determine what sparked the fire.

Lt. Kyle Falkner says firefighters found the cat while trying to bring the blaze under control. Stubby was extricated but had suffered from smoke inhalation, so firefighters administered oxygen via a mask.

The cat was taken to a veterinarian for further examination.
