A fire destroyed a home south of Superior, but firefighters still managed to make an incredible rescue.

Firefighters responded to a home on Highway V in the Town of Oakland Tuesday morning. Our news crew described seeing smoke from several miles away.

According to Fire Chief Darryl Fiegle with the Town of Superior, after our crew left, firefighters found a cat crying from the basement.

After digging the cat out, Fiegle said paramedics gave the animal oxygen and the owner took it to an animal hospital to be checked out.

There is no word yet on whether any people were injured, or what may have caused the fire.
