A Monroe home is a total loss after an unattended fire pit caused the house to ignite on Sunday morning.
Crews say an occupant of the home in the 700 block of Davis Dr. woke up to the sound of glass breaking then saw a fire on the deck and outer wall of the home. Fire units arrived on the scene around 2:30 a.m. and began attacking the fire. Once control of the fire was gained, crews entered the home and found the family cat trapped under debris in the family room. The cat was rescued and treated with oxygen then given back to the family.
Units were at the home until about 6 a.m. No one was injured. Damage is estimated at more than $200,000 and the home is considered a total loss.
