Firefighters rescue women, clowder of cats from Glen Park blaze

Firefighters rescued a pair of women and five cats from a home in Glen Park that was on fire Thursday morning, according to the San Francisco Fire Department.

The rescues unfolded around 9 a.m. when firefighters responded to a three-story residential building at 119 Randall St., a block away from San Jose Avenue. The single-alarm fire was on the top floor, according to fire officials.

The women were taken to a local hospital for treatment of smoke inhalation. Animal Care and Control responded to treat the felines.

Both the women and the cats are in stable condition.

Fire officials said on Twitter that two cats are “ok.”
