Saturday House Fire Being Probed In City

A Saturday house fire is under investigation in the city of Jamestown.

Jamestown Fire Department responded to 11 Deering St. around 11:45 a.m. and found fire in the rear of the house extending to the roof from the first floor. The occupant of the house was standing on the sidewalk with his three dogs and stated everyone is out of the house and only his cat was unaccounted for.
