Laredo, Texas Animal Control Officer Jose Aranda, had only been on the job about four months when he faced a fire to save 45 cats.

When fire crews arrived, Aranda had helped all the cats get outside the building.

After saving all the cats, the officer went to the hospital due to the excessive heat and smoke inhalation causing dizziness.
