CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) - Residents of 1220 Western Avenue in Cedar Falls heard a beeping in their basement and went downstairs to find flames in the corner.

KWWL first brought you the story as breaking news on the KWWL News at Noon.

By the time the people called 911 and got outside, the flames had already spread to the first floor of the house.

Crews were able to put the fire out quickly, but the blaze had already left its mark... causing extensive damage.

There's been no word as to how the fire started.
