Two out of 13 cats in home die

The Canadian Red Cross is assisting two people who were left homeless following a house fire in St. John’s Wednesday night.

An area resident on the back of a fire truck gives oxygen to a cat rescued from a fire at a home on Buckmaster's Circle in St. John's.

The fire happened on Buckmaster’s Circle shortly after 7 p.m. Four people were treated for smoke inhalation.

On Thursday, the Canadian Red Cross arranged emergency lodging for a man and a woman left homeless following the fire. They were also offered food and clothing. The pair spent the previous night with a relative.

Of the 13 cats they were providing foster care, two have died. Local animal welfare group Heavenly Creatures is looking after most of the cats.
