Woman’s pet cat, birds rescued from south Fort Myers house fire

SOUTH FORT MYERS

 

Firefighters saved a woman’s pets that she feared were trapped inside a house fire early Tuesday morning in south Fort Myers.

A fire broke out in the garage of Mary Stoia’s Case del Lago home on Axis Deer Lane at around 5:15 a.m., and she was able to grab her two dogs before running outside with the other two people who also live there. Stoia could not grab her cat Johnny or two birds before escaping the house. Fortunately, firefighters with the South Trail Fire Department were able to get the animals out safely after they responded to the scene.

One person from the home reported minor injuries and was treated at the scene by firefighters. The Red Cross was called to assist the residents of the home.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
