    Cat blamed for starting fire with toaster oven


    Investigators believe a cat who liked to sleep on top of a toaster oven started a kitchen fire in Port Townsend by depressing the toaster lever. Lois Lund told The Peninsula Daily News she doesn't hold a grudge against her cat Osiris. Lund said he had been sleeping on top of the oven to avoid a pet dog and probably stepped on the lever.

    Lund heard the fire early Sunday and put it out with a garden hose.

    Fire investigator Kurt Steinbach said the fire originated in the oven that had been left on.

    The cat escaped, and no one was hurt in the fire.
