Tulsa Family Displaced, Pets Saved In House Fire
TULSA, Oklahoma - A Tulsa family lost their home but kept their pets in a house fire Saturday morning. The fire started in the attic of a home in the 1200 block of North 76th East Avenue, according to Acting Fire Chief Levi Moore III.
All five adults and four children got out of the house safely, Moore said. Crews knocked the fire down quickly.
Moore said the family was out of the house when crews arrived and told firefighters there were pets in a back room. A search and rescue team went in, saving a mother cat and 10 kittens.
One cat required some oxygen, Moore said. A dog also escaped through through the back door.
The Red Cross is helping the family with food, clothing, shoes and a place to stay as needed, according to Donita Quesnel, communications director for the Tulsa Area Red Cross.
