SARASOTA, FL - Firefighters come to the rescue of 9 cats trapped inside a burning home Tuesday evening.

It happened just after 6:30pm at a home on Breakwater Circle in the Gulf Gate area of Sarasota.

Sarasota County firefighters say the fire started in the kitchen and quickly grew out of control.
