Fire damages roof, attic of Cedar Rapids home

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- A roof and attic at a Cedar Rapids home is heavily damaged after a fire Saturday night.

It happened just before 9 p.m. in the 400 block of Norwick Road Southwest.

A guest at the home smelled a strong smoke odor, then opened the door to a porch and saw flames shooting out of the roof.

Four people and a dog in the home all got out safely. There was also smoke and water damage to the main level and basement of the residence.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
