BLOOMFIELD, Conn. (AP) - Officials say a Connecticut home is uninhabitable after it sustained serious damage from a fire.

The fire ignited at a Bloomfield home on Sunday afternoon on the 1100-block of Blue Hills Avenue.

The blaze traveled quickly from the front porch to the attic and smoke could be seen pouring out of the side of the house.

The homeowner and a neighbor were inside of the home at the time. Both women evacuated safely. No injuries were reported, but The American Red Cross is assisting five adults displaced by the fire.

WFSB-TV reports a cat is missing.

The fire began on the front porch. It is unclear what caused the blaze.

Fire officials are investigating.
