Cradled in the arms of a Washington firefighter, a cat is carried to safety after being rescued from its fire-damaged home in a third-floor apartment at 5 Village West Court. The cat, who officials said suffered from smoke inhalation, was later released to a neighbor for care while its owner is treated at a hospital for injuries related to the fire.
