Cats helped by paramedics at Monday's fire call to Chemainus home
At least one family cat received oxygen from paramedics Monday after firefighters attended reports of smoke coming from a Chemainus home.
Felines were helped on scene of the 11:05 a.m. Elliot Street incident, across from Chemainus Secondary School, a witness said.
It was unknown what injuries a cat or cats suffered during the Family Day event.
Chemainus firefighters, backed by Crofton's crew, attended the single-story home after neighbours reported smoke coming from the single-family dwelling.
It was unknown by press time if the home sustained any damage.
Rob Clark, North Cowichan's assistant to the fire commissioner, was investigating the incident.
