Neighbors had a fire, kittys were lost

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Last night was a sad one for my neighborhood, where I have only lived 6 months. I was watching TV (Cops) and realized the sirens I heard were from outside. I looked outside and saws tons of sirens and smelled smoke, and could see it across the way. I went outside and saw my neighbors cat Lucky running towards his house. His owners and I walked over and saw that a house had smoke pouring out, and the firefighters had just gone in. Another neighbor said that the lady who lived there is going through a divorce, has two kids, health problems, and she just saw her leaving to pick up her kid from girl scouts. She also mentioned that they had two outside/indoor cats that she hoped were out. There were fire trucks from 5 different depts. The fire was put out, and the family came home.
Well, a coworker of mine (volunteer fire fighter) was one of the first on the scene. He said that no one was home (thank god) but that they found both of the cats and the pet bunny. There was a tremendous heat in the house, and everything was melted. RIP little angels. What a terrible tragedy for this family.

Rest in peace little kitties and bunny.

Thanks y'all. I don't know this lady personally but the neighbor that knew her said she could stay at her house, and according to the local paper they stayed with family that night. I just feel badly. Although I find any tragedy sad, when it happens so close it bothers you more. I don't know what I would do if something like that happened!

That is just so awful. Is there any way you and a few of the neighbors can help pitch in to replace belongings lost? That might give you a chance to offer condolences on the kitties, too. I imagine they have many people who discount their feelings about losing the cats, in the face of such a big tragedy...but they may be having a lot of trouble dealing with it!

My heart goes out to the family...may the kitties rest in peace...
