Earlier this week, Ames Fire Department had to run inside a burning home twice before they found Cleo the cat in the basement, unresponsive and surrounded by thick, black smoke. Using an oxygen mask, designed specifically for animals, firefighters spent more than 30 minutes trying to bringing the lifeless feline back to life. The firefighters were successful, and Cleo is expected to make a full recovery.
