Omaha firefighters battled a two-story house fire -- and an already hot day -- this morning at 3102 T St.
The fire was reported at 8:53 a.m. No one was inside the house, said Omaha Assistant Fire Chief Dan Stolinski.
After firefighters entered the house and found no one inside, the blaze became so large that they were forced to withdraw. The fire was put out around 10 a.m.
Neighbors told firefighters that three people, along with a dog and a few cats, live in the home. Firefighters found one cat, which had to be resuscitated and is now OK.
The American Red Cross is trying to get in touch with the family, who is reportedly out-of-town.
Misty Warner, the neighbor who reported the fire, saw smoke from her home and flames as she got closer. Warner and her boyfriend started beating on the door to see if anyone was inside before calling 911.
