CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) – An investigation by the Fire Department has determined that the source of the Easter morning fire at 511 17th Street SE was a coffee pot in the kitchen of the one-unit apartment building. Fire officials say the coffee pot either had an electrical failure or the coffee pot was left on and overheated. The fire has been ruled unintentional.

The fire, which was reported by a neighbor on April 4th, caused significant damage to the kitchen and attic areas of the residence. The occupant was not home at the time of the fire.
