>> here's the reason why. >> reporter: the person who was living here was a volunteer who took in feral cats and cared for them. animal care and control knows about the house. by all accounts the cats are very well taken care of. at around 1:45 this morning, a fire broke out in the back of the house. carol miller escaped through a side door, got into a back patio but that back patio was locked in to keep the animals from escaping. so she cowered in a corner, called 911 and when firefighters got there, they were able to rescue her and her dog. the dog is the one who woke her up and saved her life. when firefighters got in there they were able to knock down the fire relatively quickly in an hour. but unfortunately, many of the cats, about 100 of them, were enclosed in a caged area and didn't escape. many of them died from smoke inhalation i'm told from the
5:31 am
fire department. let's go ahead and hear a little bit more about what happened. >> i stood up on the couch and turned around, i could see that flames were coming from what is my bedroom in the back -- in the middle back of the house. and i got out through the patio and waited out there. i couldn't actually leave the patio because that is an enclosure for the cats. >> reporter: no others were injured and now carol miller says she is waiting for animal care and control to take about 6 of the cats that survived to get them care. about 100 will have to be cremated and buried. devastating for her because she spends her life collecting these feral and unwanted cats from the stanford area. they have an agreement, her organization is called cat net and they have an agreement with stanford university to help control the feral cat population so those cats are

brought here and well cared for. very tragic incident for her. she says she doesn't even leave the house often times always worries about the cats as if they are her children. she is in that white car behind me right now waiting for a friend to come help her bring the surviving cats, her dog also in the car, again, lucky to be alive this morning. reporting in san jose, i'm sue kwon for kpix 5. it was another night of violence in the aftermath of the george zimmerman acquittal. in l.a., hundreds of demonstrators started trash fires jumped on cars bashed windows and vandalized their way through city streets. police say the crowd was not part of a peaceful prayer rally earlier in the night. a photographer for our sister station kcbs was attacked and hurt so badly that he is now in the hospital. in oakland, police and protestors clashed until early this morning. nine people were arrested overnight. most of the suspects do not live in oakland.
