ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are investigating a house fire that killed nine cats in Orlando.

Firefighters were able to rescue two other cats early Saturday morning. They were treated for smoke inhalation.

Officials say a smoke detector alerted the homeowner - who lived with the eleven cats - to the fire. The homeowner was able to escape uninjured.

The state fire marshal is investigating. No word yet on the cause of the fire.
