CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Fire crews in Cedar Rapids say alert neighbors spotted a fire at their next door neighbor's home. It happened around 9 p.m. Friday night in the 4500 block of Walker St. NE.  Crews say 27-year-old Brad Kurtz and 29-year-old Sara Nelson smelled smoke, saw the flames, then Kurtz started spraying water on the fire with a garden hose. Fire crews showed up a few minutes later and kept the fire confined to one side of the attic. The home's residents were not home but their four dogs were inside. They're okay. Crews say there's very little damage to the home.
