Eighteen cats and two birds were killed during a Connecticut house fire, but firefighters were able to save eight other pets.
The blaze broke out just after 1:30 a.m. in the town of Berlin, and the female homeowner, Katherine O'Leary, was able to escape without being injured.
Matt Odishoo, the deputy fire marshal of Berlin, said the fire department brought most of the surviving animals out and revived them, before turning them over to animal control.
The surviving animals include seven cats and one sheep dog named Quigley. They are in the custody of Berlin Animal Control.
"They look healthy. They're traumatized, obviously, but they look healthy. They're good weights," Jan Lund, the animal control officer for Berlin, said.
