MUSKEGON COUNTY, Mich. -- Two people -- along with several exotic pets -- managed to avoid injury in a house fire early Thursday morning.
It happened at a home on Locust Court in Muskegon. When crews arrived, smoke and flames were seen coming from the home. Officials at the scene say two residents escaped safely. There were, however, a handful of exotic pets in their cages that were still inside.
Between the residents' initial escape to safety, and the efforts of the firefighters, all pets were saved: two sugar gliders, a chinchilla, and what was described as a unique kind of turtle.
A cat also walked out of the home unscathed on its own.
There is no word yet on a cause.
