FOUNTAIN HILLS - A cat trapped in a fire died before firefighters could put out a fire that blazed through a business in a commercial building in Fountain Hills, officials said.

The fire broke out about 6:30 a.m. Monday in the 157000 block of East Enterprise Drive, causing an estimated $100,000 in damages, said Katie Decker, a Fountain Hills spokeswoman.

Firefighters from the three neighboring Fire Departments, Rural/Metro, Rio Verde and Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation, responded to the fire and extinguished the flames. No one was injured, Decker said.

The building is part of a commercial complex that includes other businesses. Buildings on either side of the burned building had some smoke and heat damage, Decker said.

Although foul play is not suspected, fire inspectors are still investigating the cause of the fire, she said.

As a self-proclaimed cat-hater, I do not think this qualifies as news (at least not the cat part as the lead-in). The lady with 47 cats may disagree.
