REDDING, Calif. - Redding firefighters responded to a house fire around 9:30 a.m. this morning on the 6200 block of Westside Road in Redding. 

A husband and wife, who have lived in the house for 10 years, were in the home at the time the fire ignited. The woman was sleeping when the fire occurred, but her husband was awake and called the Redding Fire Department when the fire broke out.

According to firefighters, the blaze started on the back porch of the house and made its way into the attic.

The woman was taken to the hospital due to smoke inhalation, but is expected to make a full recovery. The man suffered third-degree burns but was treated on scene. 

There were three cats in the house at the time of the fire. One of the cats was pronounced deceased, while another was pulled out of the fire alive. A third cat is missing, but witnesses of the fire have said that they saw a cat running away from the house at the time of the fire. 

Action News Now reporter Mario Montalvo is on the scene gathering more information. The cause of the fire is unknown at this time, but the fire department does not expect arson to be a factor.
