Police report confusion in fire that killed 2

Dispatchers say the call they received only said cats were in danger, not the caller or the other man trapped in the burning home

Police say the man called 911 - saying cats were dying in the fire, but he didn't tell dispatchers that he was disabled - or that he and another man were trapped in the house.
