The Pas Fire Department responded to a report of smoke coming from a house on Kerr Place last Friday afternoon.
According to Duty Officer Matt Pecar, when he arrivd on the scene there were visable flames coming from the side of the home. “Crews arrived on scene shortly after and began an aggressive interior attack and brought the fire under control,” Pecar explained.
Pecar said the house was vacant and there were no injuries. While there were no human injuries reported, felines were rescued and taken care of by department personnel. “Two cats were living there and one cat was given CPR oxygen on scene by firefighters for smoke inhalation and was released to the homeowner and is doing well,” Pecar said.
There is currently no estimate on the damage and the fire appears to be accidental and not suspicious.
“I would like to remind people of the tri-community to ensure you have working smoke alarms and, if you can, have a fire extinguisher in your house and have a fire escape plan,” Pecar added.
