An East Tennessee family lost two cats in a house fire Monday night.

Flames and heavy smoke could be seen coming out of the house on South Dogwood Lane in Claxton, near a gas station.

Investigators say the blaze started in the kitchen and spread to the living room before crews knocked it down.

They say the Red Cross has been called out to help the two renters living in that home.
