Firefighters rescued a cat from a mobile home fire Tuesday in Vancouver’s North Image neighborhood. Vancouver Fire Department crews were dispatched at 9:49 a.m. to Sky Ridge Estates mobile home park, 13217 N.E. 59th St., for a report of a residential fire. While en route to the fire, dispatchers relayed that a witness reported someone had entered the home and not exited, Vancouver Fire Department spokesman Joe Spatz said. The first arriving crew found a mobile home with smoke and flames visible on the inside and outside; thick, black smoke was pouring from the building and flames were spreading to a nearby tree, Spatz said. Firefighters doused the spreading flames from outside of the home before another crew went inside and extinguished the interior fire, according to the fire department.
