A northeast Cedar Rapids fire that damaged a family’s home was set intentionally, officials said Monday.
The Friday fire at 1639 Hollywood Blvd. NE — in which a family of four’s cat died and two firefighters were injured — resulted in the sun porch and a portion of the kitchen receiving extensive fire damage.
The family of four was been displaced due to the fire.
According to a news release, the investigation remains ongoing and anyone with information is encouraged to contact the fire department at 319-286-5200.
The two firefighters who were injured have been treated and released, said Cedar Rapids public safety spokesman Greg Buelow.
