The owner of the home on Bethelem Hill Road told authorities her cat woke her around 7 a.m. Friday so she could hear the fire alarm. Both got out of the house safely.
Fire crews for a time were unable to fight the fire from the inside due to the extreme heat and amount of smoke it was producing. Crews also had to utilize a frozen creek for water and two hoses broke while responding to the fire.
3:25 p.m. UPDATE: The fire marshal has determined the fire to be an accident. Damage to the home is estimated at $75,000.
