Crews contained a house fire in east Edmond, overnight.

Officials responded to the home on Mistletoe Lane, near N. Bryant Avenue & E. Danforth Road after midnight. Crews report the structure was fully involved upon arrival. A total of 10 units responded, including the Oak Cliff FD. Two residents inside the home told firefighters their cat alerted them to the fire.

"He said his cat woke him up. He opened the door there was heavy black smoke coming down the hallway, essentially made sure the other occupant was up, held their breath and made it out of the structure," said Edmond's Deputy Fire Chief John Neely.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation. Estimated damages are currently unknown.

No injuries were reported.

Crews drenched a second structure on the property approximately 25 feet away to prevent a second fire.
