Firefighters said the man was working on a motorcycle in his garage. He went inside for some reason, and when he got back to the garage it was on fire, crews said.

Firefighters were able to save a very lucky kitty with a FIDO bag. No one else was injured in the blaze. 

The victim is not being identified at this time.

A fire investigator was on scene late Tuesday night trying to find the cause of the fire.
