A third alarm fire swept through an apartment building leaving several residents without a home in Pasadena Wednesday.

KNX reporter Margaret Carrero reported that a fire spokesperson says two dogs were found dead inside the apartment where the fire started.

The fire was on East Bellevue Drive. 

A total of five units were involved and are not habitable due to smoke and fire damage.

Lisa Derderian with Pasadena Fire says the fire started just before 9 a.m. and was fully involved when crews arrived.

Officials say several people, including some firefighters, are being assessed for minor injuries and possible smoke inhalation.

There was some good news.

A 13-year-old cat was pulled to safety from a first-floor apartment.

His owner had been out on a walk when the fire started and was grateful her boy is okay.
