Davenport Fire Marshal Mike Hayman said Tuesday that the cause of Monday's house fire on Kirkwood Boulevard where several cats perished was electrical.

Two residents were in the house at 608 Kirkwood Blvd. when fire broke out in the first-floor living room area about 9:30 a.m., Hayman said.

The homeowners made it out safely, but several cats did not, Hayman said.

Firefighters had to pull siding away from a wall of the house to fight the fire.
