Firefighters were able to help save a cat after responding to a fire Tuesday in Pine City.

The Pine County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post that a structure fire was reported at about 11 a.m. on Forest Road.


The house had heat and smoke damage, but was saved. And when firefighters did an interior sweep of the house, they discovered an unresponsive cat.

The sheriff's office said the Fire Department was able to revive the animal.

"Not to start a cat vs dog argument but apparently, the cat was less than appreciative of the efforts and was described as quite 'crabby,'" the sheriff's office wrote in its post. "This might also explain why we have a K9 program and not a feline program at the Sheriff's Office."
