ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Firefighters rescued two cats from a burning Orange County apartment Sunday night, but a third cat died.

One cat was revived at the scene, and a second was taken to Underhill Animal Clinic on Lake Underhill Road. The third did not survive. The blaze broke out about 10 p.m. at The Club at Orlando Apartments, 8215 Sun Spring Circle. The fire was put out in less than 12 minutes.
