Firefighters fighting Hudson Valley fire find 100 cats

Firefighters in the Mid-Hudson Valley got more than they bargained for fighting a dual-alarm fire in Orange County: nearly 100 cats, a report said.

The animals were believed to be part of an “extreme hoarding situation” at the home where the fire broke out on Thursday afternoon, the Woodbury Animal Shelter wrote on Facebook.

“Last night the Woodbury Animal Shelter was called to help with a terrible house fire,” the shelter said.

“This was an extreme hoarding situation and there were probably close to 100 cats living in that home. The firefighters were absolutely amazing and saved the cats that were caged in the house.”

Some of the cats were taken to the shelter and need medical attention, according to the shelter, but not all of the cats were rescued.

“These cats are now at our shelter and require all medical care. Luckily, many of the free-roaming cats escaped and will soon be trapped. We are currently unsure how many cats died in the fire,” the Facebook post said.

The Woodbury Fire Brigade told ABC7 that the condition of the home hampered their efforts to stop the fire.
