BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Boca Raton Firefighters responded to an apartment fire on Clint Moore Road late Sunday and discovered not just a fire, but a cat trapped inside.

The cat was saved and while damage was significant, it could have been a lot worse according to first responders who said that the building’s sprinkler system helped immeasurably.

This is the official public report from Boca Raton Fire Rescue:
