Two people are injured and a home is destroyed after a fire in Cedar Rapids. It happened just after 5:30 Sunday morning at 3107 Bayberry Drive Southwest.

The Cedar Rapids Fire Department said the owner of the home, a 61-year-old woman, called 9-1-1 after seeing a fire in her basement.

The woman and her one-year-old granddaughter did get out of the house, but they were transported to a local hospital for possible smoke inhalation.
