Cat Killed In Fire At Home Of Swedish Reality TV Star

PACIFIC PALISADES (CBSLA.com/AP) — One of two houses damaged by an early morning fire in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles is the home of Swedish reality TV star Gunilla Persson, who escaped along with her elderly mother and teenage daughter while neighbors were injured.

Persson appears in “Svenska Hollywoodfruar,” or “Swedish Hollywood Wives.”

Persson tells The Associated Press they were fortunate and that possessions can be replaced but lives cannot.

It took 88 firefighters just under an hour to extinguish the flames, but crews were unable to resuscitate one of her Persson’s cats.

The blaze erupted shortly after 2 a.m. Thursday and nearly 90 firefighters responded.

Fire Department spokesman Erik Scott says a couple and their two teenage daughters suffered smoke inhalation and were hospitalized. One victim also had burns.
