At least two cats died and several animals were treated for smoke inhalation after a fire broke out inside an East Hollywood pet store.

Los Angeles Fire Department personnel responded to Pet Joy on the 800 block of Virgil Avenue around 6:20 p.m. after receiving reports of a fire.

Firefighters arrived on scene and found the business, which is in a row of one-story commercial businesses, filled with smoke.

It took about 25 minutes for firefighters to gain access and fully extinguish the fire while rescuing 14 animals from inside.

Fire Department officials initially said two cats and two dogs died as a result of the fire, but later clarified that only two cats were killed.

Nine dogs and three cats were provided oxygen by face mask and are expected to survive, firefighters said.

Los Angeles Animal Services was called to respond to the scene to provide care and support for the injured animals.

No humans were injured in the fire, which LAFD officials said is under investigation.
