Sheridan firefighters rescued a cat, and no injuries were reported of pets or people in a structure fire Sunday.

The call of a fire at 231 S. Custer came in shortly before 4:30 p.m., and crews with Sheridan Fire Rescue, Goose Valley Fire Department, Rocky Mountain Ambulance, Sheridan police and MDU responded.

When they arrived, crews noticed light smoke coming from the eaves and attic vents of the house. Crews were able to safely remove the cat from the structure, and all of the residents of the house were out at the time.

Fire Rescue Captain Jon Syring, who was incident commander, said an interior attack was made on the blaze, and a fire in the walls of the structure was quickly extinguished with a single hose.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
