A Purr-fect Rescue on Hudson Avenue By Truck 716's Crew

By: BC Mark Davis and Lt. Rob Furst

Captain David Barcenas and Tillerman Kyle Holder were able to save two cats that were trapped in an apartment fire on Saturday evening on Hudson Avenue in Takoma Park Fire Station 2's area. After 10 or so minutes of oxygen, via a non-rebreather mask, the four-legged creatures were turned over to their owner - who was elated to see the furry little faces. A job well done by Truck 716! Next up...a trip to the vet's office.

We are also pleased to report that all humans escaped the fire without injury!
