A cat named Felix was rescued by firefighters from his smoke filled burning home on Roosevelt Ave. in Pennfield Township, Michigan, near Battle Creek, this morning.

Firefighters from Pennfield, Emmett and Bedford responded to the fire, which was reported at about 9 am. As can be seen in the raw video footage below, thick white smoke poured from the building as flames spread inside.

Felix was safely brought outside by a firefighter and was reunited with his family, who were at a neighbor’s house after fleeing the fire. Bedford Fire Capt. Tim Van Ameyden cradled the cat in his arms before handing him off to his family.

No one was hurt in the fire.
