CHAMPAIGN -- A firefighter was hurt battling a house fire Wednesday. It happened at a home in the 1500-block of Devonshire. A passerby spotted the fire and called it in.

It started in the living room, then spread to other parts of the house. Crews forced their way in and put it out. Homeowner Eric Meyer was not there at the time, but is thankful that his cat made it out OK.

"It doesn't do a whole lot of good to be bothered about it. I'm going to go to a hotel and find one that will take a cat."

The firefighter who was hurt was treated and released from the hospital. Firefighters are still investigating the cause. The loss is around $100,000.
