Chicopee firefighters are investigating an apartment fire Thursday that displaced a tenant and killed her cat.

According to our media partner, Masslive.com, firefighters responded to a fire at the Canterbury Arms Apartment building at 165 East Main St. at 1 a.m. Thursday.

Firefighters said there was still a heavy smoke odor in the building, which is part of the Chicopee Housing Authority. Officials said a window was open and a fan was being used to help get rid of the smell on the fifth floor.
