DECATUR, Ill. (WCIA) — Firefighters worked to put out a house fire Monday evening. It started just before 7 pm, near the corner of West Forest and South McClellan avenues. When crews arrived, they found smoke showing from a 2.5 story multi-family house.

Flames filled the second floor apartment, but firefighters were able to put it out before it went into the attic. No people were hurt but a cat was taken out of the apartment and died after attempts to revive it.

Officials are still investigating the cause.
