  • Livonia fire crews save cat from burning house
    Posted On: Aug 02, 2017

    Livonia firefighters were able to save a family pet after a fire broke out in the kitchen of a home in the southwest part of the city.

    Deputy Chief Mike Kelly of the Livonia Fire Department said firefighters were called at about 11 a.m. Monday to a fire in the 37000 block of Grantland, located west of Newburgh.

    A fire had started in the kitchen, which damaged the interior of the room but was mostly contained. Fire crews were able to extinguish the fire, which caused smoke damage throughout the house. No injuries were reported.

    The family's two dogs were able to get out to a neighbor's home, Kelly said, but the family's cat could not be located. So fire crews entered the home, searching for the feline.

    "They extinguished the fire and were able to execute a search and rescue the cat," Kelly said.

    The cat was located and brought out of the home unharmed.

    Fire crews then used a pet oxygen mask on the cat to deliver it fresh oxygen outside the home. The masks were donated last year to the department, with fire crews receiving training on how to use them from Dr. Heather Robertson from Animal Emergency Center in Novi.

    Kelly said it appeared the cat was doing well after the blaze.

    "As far as I know, the cat's doing fine," he said.
