Family, pet cat safe after Concord fire
Fire Chief Daniel Andrus said the fire destroyed the garage and caused "extensive damage" to the attached wall of the house. It also damaged the breezeway and left the kitchen and other parts of the home with smoke damage.
But the family's biggest concern, he said, was Penelope, the kitten they'd had for just a week.
"One of our firefighters went inside and located the kitten and brought it out to a very, very happy family," he said. "The kitten is just fine and was kind of entertained by all of the activity going on."
Andrus said fire investigators were at the scene, trying to determine what started the fire.
He said the homeowners, their 10-year-old son and his kitten are staying with relatives while repairs are made to the home.
