FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Three people escaped a fire in a ground-floor apartment at the Westwind Apartments in Fort Wayne Thursday night, but their pets weren’t as lucky.

One person was assisted down from a 3rd-floor balcony with a ladder truck. Another two people managed to get themselves out.
Two cats died in the fire. The American Red Cross is assisting those residents that were displaced by the blaze, which is still under investigation.
