Cat Rescue in Citrus Heights

Citrus Heights, CA- This afternoon, Metro Fire was dispatched to a reported structure fire with visible flames. While en route, a black column of smoke was visible from a distance.

Crews arrived to find a fire in the garage of a single-story house. A coordinated effort of 24 Firefighters extinguished the fire and confined it to the garage.

While crews were searching the home, they were able to locate and remove three cats. Fortunately, firefighters were able to save one by utilizing a pet oxygen mask. Though the cat was barely breathing when brought out of the structure, firefighters immediately treated and transported to a local veterinarian.

In June of this year, Metro Fire received 75 pet oxygen mask kits as a donation from Invisible Fence Brand. We now carry these kits on our apparatus for emergencies like this.

Metro Fire not only saved $200K in property value, but also a cat's life. The cat is currently doing well and resting comfortably.
