Cat given oxygen after house fire in Leicester

Fire crews gave a cat oxygen after it was rescued from a house blaze in Leicester.

Three crews tackled the fire last week and saved a cat and dog.

The blaze broke out at a property in Melland Place, on the Saffron Lane Estate, just after 9am. The occupants of the property were out when the incident occurred.
