Crews were able to rescue pets from an apartment fire near Lake Worth early Sunday.

Firefighters responded to the Oakwood Apartment complex in the 2400 block of Second Avenue at 2:07 a.m.

Firefighters entered the two-story building to search for pets they had been told were inside.

Shortly after entering the structure, flames blew out the upstairs windows.
