AUDIO: Cat dies and family of four displaced from residential fire in Janesville



A Janesville family is ok, but their cat is dead, and their home is destroyed following a residential fire early Sunday morning.

Janesville Fire Shift Commander Scott Running says crews were dispatched to a single family home on the 3700 block of Ridge Drive just after 2:00 a.m. 

The estimated damage to the home and contents is over $400,000.

Initial investigation indicates that high winds blowing at a fire pit that's next to the home may have caused the blaze.

The family of four is staying with family.
