Tuesday afternoon in Gladstone, Michigan, a concerned citizen noticed smoke coming from the roof of a residence and called 911.  When Gladstone Public Safety officers and volunteer firefighters entered the residence, they found that no one was home– except for four cats.

All four of the cats were quickly rescued from the blaze and assessed for injuries.  Two of the cats were given medical attention by Rampart Emergency Medical Services using oxygen masks.

Firefighters had to knock out the front window for ventilation purposes and remove part of the ceiling to access the fire.  They were able to extinguish the blaze quickly, but the home sustained smoke and water damage.

The event is still under investigation and the overall extent of damage to the home is unknown, but the fire is believed to have started in the wiring of a light fixture in the home’s ceiling, near the back entryway.

All four cats have now been reunited with their grateful owners thanks to the efforts of Rampart EMS and volunteers and Gladstone Public Safety with the assistance of Michigan State Police and the Delta County Sheriff’s Department.
