CHICAGO (WBBM) – A cat landed safely and walked away after jumping out of a fifth-floor window of a burning building in Englewood Thursday.

The fire broke out on the fifth floor of the six-story apartment building on 65th Street and Lowe Avenue Thursday afternoon, the fire department said.

The fire department called a standstill alarm for the fire, which was contained in a unit and was quickly extinguished.

The video provided by the fire department showed smoke rising from broken windows in the building. A black cat leaps out of an open window while a crowd yells, “Look at the cat!”

The cat landed safely in the grass, ricocheted off, and walked away.

No injuries were reported in the fire.
