A cat was saved and two emergency workers were hurt while battling a smokey fire at a condo community near Harwood and Main in Euless Friday night.

Four individually-owned townhomes have major damage from the fast-moving fire that officials believe started in the attic of one of units before spreading to the other three.

Firefighters said three people, including a Euless police officer and a firefighter, had to be treated at the scene for minor injuries.  One person was treated after fainting.

No one was transported and no other injuries were reported.

Rescuers were able to save a cat whose owner was out of town.  The animal wasn't breathing when found by firefighters, but rescuers were able to revive the cat with oxygen.  The animal was then taken to a North Texas veterinarian for treatment and is expected to be OK.

The Red Cross is assisting families displaced by the fire.
