MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - A fire caused by fireworks destroyed a house in Victor.

Donna Cronister tells KECI-TV (http://bit.ly/29vu4zh ) that she and her husband were setting off fireworks at about 10:30 p.m. Monday when one of the pyrotechnics went off sideways, sending sparks toward their house.

Victor Fire chief Scott Hackett says the firework landed under a juniper bush, causing a fire that spread rapidly. He says the house is a total loss.

The homeowners were not injured but Hackett says a firefighter was injured when an artificial beam in the living room fell on his head.

Cronister says her dog got out of the house and a firefighter rescued a cat that was hiding under the bed.
