The first unit on scene found a single family residence with fire and heavy smoke coming from a bedroom on the alpha/delta side of the home and was quickly upgraded from a working assignment to a second alarm fire. It was reported that there may have been a resident still inside the home, however, after a primary search only a pet cat was found.
