Four pets died Wednesday morning after a fire ripped through Fieldcrest apartments in Dothan
The fire began in the kitchen of one of the apartments.
The smoke was so thick that 4 cats inside didn't make it out alive.
However, no one was inside the unit.
A neighbor who lives below the burned apartment says he was asleep at the time the fire began.
“The maintenance guy came over and began banging on the door. I thought somebody was joking so I actually went back and lay back down. They banged on it again, I started smelling smoke, I got up and grabbed my phone was all I had time to grab, there was so much smoke coming out of there,” said Mark Spence
Investigators say the fire was likely caused by a pot left on a stove.
