Firefighters resuscitated a pet cat a house fire in Scarborough this morning.
The blaze broke out in the laundry of the two-storey Nautilus Crescent property about 10am.
No-one was home at the time, but when firefighters entered the home they found an unconscious cat in one of the smoke-filled bedrooms.
The pet was resuscitated and is now being looked after at the scene.
Damage is estimated at about $80,000.
Fireighting units from Duncraig, Daglish and Osborne Park attended.
The blaze was contained to the laundry but smoke damage through the house was significant.
