he SPCA rescues nearly two dozen cats out of a Philadelphia home, after it catches fire this evening.
NBC10's Chris Cato talked to a neighbor who lives on the 800 block of Medway Road in Bustleton, and was the first to spot the flames.
"I ran back there and looked out and there was flames coming out of the kitchen," said Denise Mueller.
After firefighters put out the flames, they noticed all the cats inside the home and alerted the SPCA.
Two cats died in the fire. SPCA workers rescued 21 cats in total.
Police call this a "hoarding situation" and they say it's not just because of the number of cats, but because of the condition inside the home.
