Family awaken to the sounds of popping in Cedar Rapids fire

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- A Cedar Rapids family awoke to the sounds of popping and buzzing just before midnight Wednesday.

Sparks were seen coming from an outside electrical meter at a home on 23rd Street Southeast. Fire crews extinguished the flames and disconnected electrical power upon arrival.

The Tibbott family, including cats, got out of the home safely.

The American Red Cross assisted the family with a hotel room for the night.

No word on what started the fire.
