Firefighters were called to 361 21st SE for a report of smoke coming from a house, the caller said they were not for sure what was on fire. 

When emergency crews got there, they found thick brown smoke coming from the house. They checked the kitchen, no fire was found. They eventually located the fire in the basement and were able to knock it down. Fire crews say there is major fire damage to the basement. 

There were two people home at the time of the fire. The fire is under investigation. 

No injuries were reported. 


Firefighters are responding to a fire at 21st St. and Grand Ave. in Cedar Rapids. 

A witness tells KWWL it might be a grease related fire. 

We reached out to Cedar Rapids Fire Department and are waiting to learn more. 

This is a developing story, please stick with KWWL.
