Scorpion rescued after Federal Heights fire

FEDERAL HEIGHTS - A scorpion was among the five animals that have been rescued so far after a fire broke out in a mobile home Wednesday morning.

The blaze started at around 9 a.m. in the 9400 block of Elm Court – which is just east of West 94th Avenue and Federal Boulevard.

The Federal Heights Fire Department says a dog, a cat and a scorpion were rescued from the home. Two rabbits and a cat are still unaccounted for. 

Firefighters say the fire was contained to the bathroom, so it’s possible these animals are hiding in another part of the mobile home or escaped.

As for the humans, none of the five residents were home when the fire broke out. 

There’s no word yet on what caused the fire.
