Two women rescued a soldier’s wife after she refused to leave her burning home because she could not find her cat.
Eventually, the two Good Samaritans led her to safety from her house in Tidworth, Wiltshire.
The 28-year-old was rushed by ambulance to Salisbury District Hospital suffering from smoke inhalation.
Neighbour Daniel Brown said: ”She refused to leave because of her cat.”
Yesterday, Wiltshire Police said it was investigating the cause of the blaze. It took 15 firefighters 20 minutes to get the blaze under control.
