Five people and a cat safely escaped a house fire Sunday evening in southeast Fort Wayne, according to the city fire department.
Two adults and three children got out of the small, one-story home at 3016 Alexander St. before firefighters arrived about 6:15 p.m., the department said.
With smoke coming from the front of the house, firefighters went inside to extinguish the flames.
It took 8 minutes to gain control of the fire, which caused moderate damage, the department said.
Firefighters rescued a cat from the home and returned it to its owner.
No injuries were reported.
