Squatters trying to stay warm may have accidentally started a fire in an abandoned South side home. The fire injured the three men who had sought shelter in the house near 70th and Ashland.

Fire investigators suspect a make-shift heat source caused the fire. The gas and electricity were shut off in the home.

While the three made it out on their own, firefighters did rescue a cat that was still inside.
