Update: Investigators now believe the fire started near a hot tub on the first floor deck outside the condo.

A fire caused significant damage to a condo in Cedar Rapids Thursday night.

Firefighters responded to the Oakwoods Condominiums just after 9 p.m.

There, firefighters saw the basement, deck, first floor, roof, and plants around one unit on fire. They put out the fire and were able to prevent it form spreading to nearby units.

The condo belongs to Catherine and Maurice Anholt. They both made it out of the condo safely with their dog.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
