Andy Hewes and Magic were both in bed sleeping when flames broke out in the pre-dawn hours. Hewes says he woke up when his cat started howling, and that’s when Andy saw the flames.
He grabbed Magic and headed out the door.
Hewes had to be treated for smoke inhalation, Magic, however, was unharmed.
According to officials an electrical problem may have caused the fire.
Hewes does have insurance. He and Magic are currently staying with relatives.
