Early Thursday morning, firefighters responded to a call of a house fire in Clairmont, Alberta. The family's cat was the one who first noticed and alerted the family of the fire.
“[The family] was pretty happy with their cat. The cat woke them up with enough time,” Grant added.
"If they hadn’t been notified, it could have definitely been a different result."
Firefighters were able to extinguish the fire, and there are no reports of injuries. The cause of the fire is still being investigated, he said.
In the meantime, the Clairmont family — and their hero cat — are currently staying at another residence.
