A firefighter was injured and two cats were killed in a fire in Naples on Thursday evening.
The fire started burning in a four-unit apartment building on Curlew Avenue in Naples.
According to the Greater Naples Fire Department, one of their firefighters was injured when something fell on him while fighting the fire.
The fire chief said that the injured firefighter is in stable condition and is alert.
Two cats were also killed in the fire. There were no other injuries or deaths.
The GNFD was assisting the Naples Fire Department in fighting the fire.
Fire Chief Pete DiMaria said that the building is most likely a total loss, but it could have been worse.
“We certainly feel for them in the loss they’re faced with in the home, but we’re certainly happy there’s no loss of life here,” DiMaria said.
DiMaria also said that it took fire crews approximately an hour and 20 minutes to contain the fire, and thanks to a quick response time of about five minutes no other surrounding buildings were damaged.
The cause of the fire is not yet known and is under investigation.
