As the investigation continues into the cause of a fire that destroyed a Kansas City apartment building, officials rescued four cats and a dog from an unaccessible area.
KC Pet Project, the nonprofit that runs the Kansas City animal shelter, helped agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The federal agency called it “great teamwork.”
“Their owners must be so relieved and thankful,” the Kansas City Police Department said on their Twitter feed.
The fire was reported after 8 p.m. Monday at the Waldo Heights Apartments.
Large plumes of smoke poured from the building’s top floor before officials arrived.
Two people jumped from the 3rd story, but were not injured. At least one person was rescued by the fire department.
Unfortunately, about 30 families were displaced due to the fire.
