Firefighters Rescue Cat from Burning Home
Firefighter Troy Platz carries “Little”
A series of very moving photos by Robert Frank for the South Bend Tribune show a cat being rescued by South Bend, IN firefighters and reunited with its family.
After an impassioned plea from a resident, South Bend firefighters brought the cat, named Little, from a burning home in the city on Wednesday, gave it oxygen and reunited it with its family.
Sadly, two dogs perished in the fire.
Tina Lancaster, the resident of the burning home, becomes emotional as she tells firefighters about her pets in the home on Fellows St. near Ewing St. on Wednesday, July 31, 2013, in South Bend.
