Eight cats rescued from Dayton apartment building fire

At least eight cats were rescued from an apartment building after a fire occurred in Dayton early Wednesday morning.

The incident occurred in the 900 block of Orchard Avenue just after midnight, per initial reports.

A resident of the building said she woke up coughing due to the smell of smoke and after inspecting the complex, saw flames coming from the apartment downstairs, prompting her to call 9-1-1.

Crews were able to quickly put out the fire, get residents out safely, and rescue all of the cats. 

No injuries were reported and officials continue to investigate what started the fire.
