Residents at an apartment block in Oxfordshire had a lucky escape from a fire after a cat raised the alarm.
Lucky woke her owner up after the blaze broke out in the ground floor flat in Florence House in Bath Road, Banbury in the early hours of Saturday.
The other residents were shaken but unhurt in the fire, which was caused by an electrical fault.
Two fire crews used breathing apparatus, high pressure carbon dioxide and water jets to tackle the fire.
Chris Wilson, station manager for Oxfordshire Fire and Rescue Service, said the block of flats had a fire alarm but its battery had been removed.
He urged people to check their fire alarms regularly to make sure they are working.
