CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

Cedar Rapids firefighters responded to an early morning fire Wednesday, May 9. Firefighters say the fire started in a garage at 917 7th Ave SE. It then spread to the house nearby.

Because of a hoarding situation, firefighters were not able to get inside the house from the front. They had to enter through the back of the house. A press release said the house is unoccupied right now. The fire was brought under control quickly. 

The press release also shows no smoke detectors were working when crews arrived. 

No injuries were reported.
