Just after midnight Fort Lauderdale Fire crews responded to a fire in a single story home located at 732 NE 16 Ave. At the time of the fire the home was occupied by 1 adult male and 4 cats. The male was not injured and crews were able to locate 3 of the cats bringing them to safety. (The forth cat was not able to be found and believed to have run off.) Once the animals were outside Fort Lauderdale Police Department and FLFR worked together to save the cats lives. Soon after the 3 cats were later taken to a local vet for further treatment.

Don't remember the year but this was from a hazmat call and one of the first calls that I had published by the Miami Herald.
What a night::At 1:44 A.M. I get a phone call. First thing I think of is emergency one of the kids. It was a voice saying fire department is the alarm going off. I ask who are you? Thinking it was a joke. Just something Richard would do when he was young. I tell him no alarm going off, I go into my florida room only to see the ladder truck coming into the building.Going outside to see if they had a fire. NO fire or smoke. I went back to bed only to get another phone call stating I was being recorded at 3:15 A.M. fire department asking again if the alarm was going off? I go to the walkway no alarm quite as a mouse. Do you smell smoke? Once again here come the ladder truck. Now I am thinking this must pi$$ the firemem off to be awaken for afaulty fire panel. As president of the building an being notified I THANK YOU VERY MUCH. North Lauderdale Fire Department #44. After church I can't wait t go back to bed.
