Burbank Firefighters received a call around 8:45 pm Saturday of a fire in a structure at 129 N. Sparks Street.
Upon arrival they found a ‘granny flat’ that had fire showing from the window and quickly raced to put out the flames. Upon entering they found two cats and after the rescue of the felines quickly had the flames out by 8:59 pm.
The cats had inhaled some smoke so firefighters did what they could to give the small animals oxygen. Burbank Police on scene requested that the Animal Shelter send someone to assist but the owner decided to take the cat directly to the animal hospital for further treatment.
Damage to the structure was estimated at $25,000 and the contents were valued at $10,000. The Red Cross was called to help two occupants who were unable to remain in the residences.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation by Burbank Fire.
