— A pet cat was rescued and then sent to the vet Monday afternoon after a fire damaged the insides of a Rock Hill house.

Crews with the Rock Hill Fire Department and EMS were called to a burning Grady Drive, off Ebenezer Road, home at about 3:42 p.m., said Battalion Chief Rusty Myers.

It took 15 minutes for crews to extinguish the flames, Myers said. Total damage to the home, specifically the basement and first floor, was $160,000. Officials anticipated that the homeowner would be displaced.

An exact cause of the blaze was unavailable.
