CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL)-- Fire crews say a five year old playing with matches caused a fire at a Cedar Rapids home.

Around 5:30 Tuesday night, crews were called to a home in the 2900 block of Meadowbrook Drive Southeast.

Damage was contained to a closet on the second floor, but there was smoke damage throughout the home.

Smoke alarms alerted the woman and her children to the fire. Fire officials say they got out safely.
