CAMDEN COUNTY, N.J. -

A fast moving fire that sparked in an unattached garage damaged four homes in Pennsauken Sunday night.

The fire sparked in the area of the 1700 block of 41st Street.

No one was injured but firefighters say they rescued two cats. The cats were given oxygen by emergency responders and appeared to be okay.

Firefighters say the wind was a factor in how quickly the fire spread.

Two of the homes suffered minor damage while the other two showed signs of heavy damage.

One man tells FOX 29's Dave Kinchen he worked alongside a police officer to break the window of one of the homes, fearing someone may be inside.
