The Fulton Fire Department responded to a residential fire early Saturday morning.
Four fire engines were dispatched at 1:31 a.m. to a fire at 304 E. 10th St. Upon arrival, the FFD said heavy smoke and flames were showing from the front right side of the structure. Crews made entry into the residence to perform search and rescue and fire extinguishment. The crews were able to locate a cat during the search, and life saving measures were taken on the cat. The FFD said the cat was turned over to a local veterinarian for further treatment. No other victims were located during the search.
The FFD said fire extinguishment took an "extended period of time" due to the number of personal items and debris inside of the residence. FFD investigators determined the cause of the fire to be accidental, yet they were unable to rule out if it was an electrical fire. The FFD said no working smoke detectors were located inside of the residence. Damages are estimated to be around $45,000.
