Fire causes damage to Cairo home

CAIRO, IL (KFVS) -

Fire crews were called to a house fire in the 2300 block of Washington Ave. in Cairo, Illinois early Saturday afternoon.

A captain with the Cairo Fire Department says flames were seen coming from the main floor of the large two story home when they arrived.

The captain says the fire was contained to one room, but the fire caused heavy smoke damage throughout the home.

Nobody was home at the time of the fire, and no injuries were reported.

The Mounds, Illinois Fire Department was called in for mutual aid.

The cause of the fire has not been determined. 

A fire marshal has been called to investigate though crews tell us they don't think it's suspicious.
