Our dept. responded to a structure fire on Cty A in Sugarcamp Monday at approximately 1:10 p.m. Sugarcamp requested a Box level MABAS alarm bringing in recourses from Pine Lake, Eagle River, and St. Germain FD. The fire started in the attached garage. The 2 adjacent rooms next to garage suffered heavy fire and water damage.

Both occupants made it out of the home although their cat ran back into the house. After some time firefighters located thei…r cat inside one of the rooms. The cat suffered from smoke inhalation. Firefighters brought it outside and used our pet rescue masks to administer oxygen. after a few minutes on oxygen we had already noticed improvement on the cat. The family then brought the cat to their local vet for further evaluation and treatment. One of our firefighters rode with the family to keep the cat on oxygen until the family reached the vet.

Firefighters were on scene for 3.5 hours. Pine Lake Engine 1, Tanker 1, Tanker 2, and Rescue 1 responded to this call.
