No serious injuries reported; blaze may have started in kitchen

Firefighters rescued two cats from an apartment fire Sunday night on Calderon Avenue. All the apartment's residents had safely evacuated before emergency personnel arrived.

Fire investigators are searching for the cause of the fire in the 100 block of Calderon, which was reported shortly after 7:40 p.m on Oct. 13, according to Jaime Garret, spokeswoman for the Mountain View Fire Department. Initial reports indicate that it started in the kitchen, she said.

Firefighters were able to quickly extinguish the fire, and no serious injuries were reported. One child complained of smoke inhalation, but was not taken to the hospital, Garrett said in a statement.

An estimate of the damage was not immediately available.
