Four cats and a dog were rescued while others perished in a two-family house fire Sunday afternoon in Garfield.

No other injuries were reported in the two-alarm fire, which displaced six residents from the two apartments, one of which apparently housed rescued pets, responders said.

The fire broke out on the second floor of the 2½-story Pacific Avenue home around 1 p.m. It was knocked down within 20 or minutes and declared under control a little over an hour later.

No injuries were reported.
