SACRAMENTO - Firefighters responded to a house fire on La Sierra Dr. in Sacramento Wednesday night and ended up saving more than the family's home.

Upon entering the home, firemen from stations 54 and 105 found little O.J. the family cat near death and pulled him from the burning building, according to a SacMav.org article. 

Once outside, the team began resuscitation efforts on the cat.  After about 45 minutes, the crew's perseverance paid off and little O.J. came back to life.

The family's neighbor rushed O.J. to the vet and he is expected to survive, according to the SacMav.org report.
