A cat was found dead in a house fire Saturday in Naperville, but firefighters were able to rescue a dog found inside the home.

No one was home when the fire began in the kitchen of the home in the 1200 block of Tennyson Lane around 8 a.m. Saturday, according to the Naperville Fire Department, which said the house sustained major water and smoke damage and was deemed uninhabitable by city inspectors.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
