Nearly 30 firefighters responded to a condo fire in Boulder today at 4125 47th Street.

No one was home, so there were not any injuries. Three pets were rescued and returned to relieved owners according to Boulder police spokesperson Kim Kobel.

What started as a deck fire, spread to the roof and caused extensive damage from smoke, fire and water.

The still undetermined cause is being investigated by fire investigators.

After three successful animal rescues, all pets accounted for and safe.

One cat was found in a master bedroom hiding behind clothes and another was hiding in a bathroom. One photo shows a cat being carried out by a firefighter and looks less than thrilled.
