The regional animal shelter in Galax is housing the 27 uninjured cats for now. Three with injuries are at Healing Springs Animal Hospital.
Firefighters rescue 30 cats from fire

Two people and 30 cats are safe, though with some injury, after a house fire on Waugh Drive at 4:30 a.m. Sunday, according to the Galax Volunteer Fire Department, which responded to the blaze.

When the door was opened, they “took off running,” said a firefighter. The owners kept a list of all 30 cats, and were able to account for each of them after the fire.

The fire was electrical in origin and started from a fusebox, sweeping towards the porch and engulfing the front of the house, owned by Conley Kyle and rented by Bobby and Carolyn Lambert.
