Fire damages Cedar Rapids apartment

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KWWL) -- Cedar Rapids fire officials say a home sustained significant damage after an early morning blaze.

 

A neighbor called the fire department after smelling smoke and looking over to see an orange glow from the house next door.

Fire crews arrived early Sunday to find heavy heat and smoke that swept up to the building's attic. Fire officials say holes had to be cut in the roof to make sure the flames were out.

No one was home at the time of the fire. The one-story apartment building used to be a beauty salon.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
