A fire broke out around 4 p.m. on Tuesday at a home along NW 118 Drive and 30th street in Coral Springs, but no one was home at the time except for the family’s cat.  Luckily for the cat, firefighters were able to get inside the home and Firefighter/Pararamedic  JT Sepielli was able to give it oxygen.

According to Fire Department Spokesperson Mike Moser, the fire was believed to have been started in the kitchen and was contained to to that area, but smoke caused damage to other areas of the home as well.
