They found at least 25 cats. In the story from News 10 ABC, Fire Chief Tom Garrett said that “it was a hoarding situation.” Because there was so much clutter in the house, firefighters had a difficult time getting around inside the house to fight the fire.

In addition to the cats and the clutter, the elderly homeowner didn’t want to leave the house, and was upset because she didn’t want to leaver her cats behind.

Members of Animal Control in Troy were called to help get the animals out of the house. Unfortunately, they couldn’t get all of them, and said that they would be fine in the house, until they could return to get the rest, today.

According to the story from the Troy Record, the fire was extinguished in about 20 minutes, and no one was injured. The Red Cross stepped in to help the woman that lived there.
