Five people and a cat safely escaped a house fire Sunday evening in southeast Fort Wayne, according to the city fire department.

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.
