SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - Flames shot out a window of a Spring Valley apartment that caught fire Thursday morning.

The fire broke out at the home in the 10,000 block of Austin Drive about 10 a.m.

No one was injured but the family who lives there says their cat died in the fire.

"I heard the beep beep beep and ran up the stairs," said Jacquline Amey, "I looked in the other room it was all smoky - opened the closet and it was engulfed in flames."

San Miguel, Heartland, La Mesa firefighters and the San Diego Sheriff’s Department assisted in the emergency.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
