Firefighters never know whom they'll be called upon to rescue.
Tuesday afternoon, Tampa Fire Rescue battled a house fire on East 23rd Avenue this afternoon and had to save several animals.
The two-story home was full of smoke when firefighters went inside. They found three cats and a 7-foot boa constrictor trapped in a bedroom.
The cats -- Luna, Bonnie, and Leo -- were all given oxygen and returned to their owner. They should make a full recovery.
The boa, named Melsuine, was also handed back to its owner -- presumably with a little extra care.
No injuries were reported.
