About 8 a.m. [March 5, 2009], Fire Lt. John L. Carlson climbed a ladder and coaxed the reluctant cats to come out to him. “Here kitty, kitty,” Lt. Carlson said. “Come ’ere, kitty.” One cat and one kitten eventually came out, and Lt. Carlson tucked them into his coat to climb down the ladder. … Several cats were rescued from the burned-out building this morning. Fire Lt. John Carlson, above, with two cats. —Photo by Capt.
