and textiles. Firefighters protected all nearby buildings from the flames and saved one feline, who was reunited with its owner. Fire crews will remain on scene throughout the night to ensure there are no hidden hot spots able to reignite. There were no injuries and the cause of the fire is under investigation. The Smoke was so intense it blanketed the surrounding streets making it hard to see and breathe as well.
