OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma City firefighters may not have been able to save a burning building, but the life of a cat was saved Sunday morning.
OKCFD responded to a fire at the Plaza Apartments in the 8200 block of N. Rockwell just after 7 a.m.
The flames were burning in the second story, where officials say a stove was left on.
When firefighters arrived, they realized two people had jumped from a second story window; one of the which had an ankle injury. Another person received minor burns and was transported for evaluation.
Firefighters also found a cat that was unresponsive. The pet was taken in and successfully revived.
The blaze completely overtook the original apartment unit and damaged another; six other units had water damage.
A total of eight families were displaced because of the fire, according to OKC Fire officials. They are reportedly being placed in other housing.
Officials say there was about $150,000 worth of damage.
