Firefighters had to be rescued Wednesday morning when they became disoriented in a burning house in Keller, authorities said.
Keller Fire-Rescue officials were called to the 1600 block of Crestwood Trail about 5 a.m. in response to a house fire believed to be sparked by lightning, according to Training Officer Jeff Huntley.
The house was occupied by a family of three and an unknown number of pets, police said. A cat died in fire, but no injuries were reported.
A fire crew entered the two-story home to attempt to fight the fire from inside. Two of the firefighters issued a mayday call after they were separated from the team and got disoriented by heavy smoke.
