No one was injured following a duplex fire in Overland Park on Saturday afternoon.

The fire happened just before 2:30 p.m. in the 9200 block of W. 75th Terrace. 

The units who were first to arrive at the scene saw heavy fire coming from the three-story building and checked to make sure everyone had gotten out.

A resident said that a cat was still inside, and firefighters rescued that animal in good condition. 

Firefighters battled flames on all three stories, as well as the attic. It took 30 minutes to get the fire under control.

No injuries were reported. 

The Red Cross is helping to find housing for two adults and their cat who lived in the unit that caught fire. Two adults from an adjoining unit are also being helped, as their unit experienced significant smoke damage. 

Residents said that they think the fire started in a vehicle that was in the driveway, then spread to the structure. 

The exact cause of the fire, however, remains under investigation.
