From the Pine County Sheriff's Office:
"On 3/5/19 at approximately 11 a.m., a structure fire was reported on Forest Road in Pine City. The house had heat and smoke damage but was saved. During an interior sweep of the house an unresponsive cat was discovered. Members of the Pine City Fire Department sprang into action and were able to revive the animal, avoiding further catastrophe.
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”. This might also explain why we have a K9 program and not a feline program at the Sheriff’s Office.
Thanks to all that helped with the fire, including Hinckley Fire Department, and for going above and beyond."
