Fire crews from Northfield and Ward End dealt with a fire on the eighth floor of a Northfield flat today (8th June) from which two cats were rescued.
The crew from Ward End were en route to their home station from a training venue in Longbridge, when the call came in to assist and attend the kitchen fire with Northfield fire service.
The flat was vacant of people at the time of the fire, but not of cats. Both cats (Chaz and Felicity) were rescued by the firefighters who administered oxygen and are expected to make a full recovery. They are currently being monitored overnight at the RSPCA.
Great job firefighters and RSPCA Birmingham :-) #PositiveB31
UPDATE 13/6/16 Chaz and Felicity back safe at home following their ordeal:
