No humans were injured in the fire, but the homeowner has four cats. One died in the fire, one is missing and the other two were unharmed.
The fire started in the kitchen after a frying pan with cooking oil was left unattended as the resident was watching the news.
The Racine Fire Department extinguished the fire quickly, but the fire damaged the kitchen, bedroom, and dining room. Fire officials estimate the loss at $25,000 to the structure and $5,000 in contents.
