Fort Lauderdale firefighters rescued a cat and her four kittens from a duplex fire that rendered an apartment uninhabitable Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters arrived to find a heavy fire going at 3541 Davie Boulevard at 1:53 p.m. They extinguished the blaze within five minutes, Fort Lauderdale Fire Rescue spokesman Matt Little said.

He said the cats suffered from smoke inhalation and were being given oxygen through pet masks.

The tenant was not home at the time of the fire, which caused heavy damage, Little added.
