A ginger and white stray cat wandered into a firehouse one day, looked around, liked what he saw and decided to make it his home.

Meet Flame the arson cat!


When Flame first arrived at  Belmont Firehouse in Greenville, SC, he was malnourished but soon made his way to the kitchen and the boys decided to feed him some fried chicken that someone had left in the fridge.
