CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - A cat is being credited with alerting a Cedar Falls resident to an apartment fire.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier (https://bit.ly/1L3MKVT ) reports a resident told Fire Chief John Schilling that a pet cat kept meowing at the ceiling of an apartment Monday night, prompting the resident to notice heat coming from above.

Fire crews found a fire in the attic of the building that caused significant damage to the roof structures. Residents of one unit were displaced but there were no injuries.

The investigation revealed that the fire was caused by an electrical problem in a bedroom light fixture.
