A cat that escaped a Monday morning fire in Ogden was given oxygen by rescue crews.
The fire broke out around 3 a.m. on Stoney Point Road.
Tweets, posted by the Gates Volunteer Ambulance Service, show crews providing oxygen to Sarah the cat.
WROC spoke with one of the fire fighters who reduced the cat. It was Abby DeJohn’s first time entering a house on fire.
“Having all the gear on and having to get in that tight space to get the cat out, it was exciting that’s a big reason why chose to volunteer, to help save animals,” said DeJohn.
Currently she is a Chemical Technician. She plans to go to Veterinarian school to become a vet.
Police say everyone, including Sarah, made it out of the house safely. Sadly, the house is considered a partial loss.
Nice work by all the fire and EMS crews who responded to the fire on Stony Point Rd. The house is a partial loss, but everyone is safe- including Sarah the cat. #roc @SpencerportFD @GatesAmbulance #ogdenny pic.twitter.com/Pb2Vr3Ax4z— Town of Ogden Police (@OgdenPoliceNY) July 16, 2018
