SEATTLE -- The Seattle Fire Department put out a large fire at a four-story apartment building in North Seattle.

Firefighters resuscitated a cat that was not breathing. The cat was found in one of the units in the building. SFD is trying to locate the cat's owner.

The Seattle Fire Department received a call about the fire just before 11 a.m.  The caller said the fire started with a motorcycle fire that spread to a car, SFD spokesperson Kyle Moore said.

Six units were completely destroyed in the fire. The Red Cross has been called in to assist those residents. Fire investigators are evaluating the property to see if others can return.

A woman was also reunited with her dog after the fire.

Leanne White wasn't home during the fire and said she found out about the fire from her dentist across the street.

Firefighters brought Fiona out to meet White.

"I have what matters," White said. "I have my dog back. Nothing else matters. Everything else can be replaced."

The building near 117th and 15th Avenue Northeast has been evacuated.
