Cedar Rapids firefighters battled a bedroom at a vacant home Monday morning.

Crews were called to 393 15th Street SE at around 8:28 a.m. Monday after someone reported seeing smoke coming from a second floor window.

Firefighters made their way into the home and found fire in a second floor bedroom.

They say the fire started on a mattress and damaged part of a bedroom wall.
