WATERLOO (AP) -

A woman and two children have safely escaped from flames that damaged the kitchen of their home in Waterloo.

Waterloo fire battalion chief Marty Freshwater told the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier that the fire broke out about 10:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The fire started in the kitchen, Freshwater said, and there was smoke damage throughout the house.

The woman, a 7-week-old child and a 10-year-old, all fled without harm, along with a pet cat, he said.

The fire cause is being investigated.
