Marion County firefighters rescued 10 cats from a Belleview home that caught fire Friday.

All of the people who live in the house were outside when firefighters arrived, but they said they couldn’t get the 10 cats inside.

Once the fire was under control, firefighters began searching the house for the cats and found them.

Paramedics administered oxygen to two of the cats.
