Two men escaped from a Franklinton house fire early Tuesday morning after they were alerted by loud noises in the basement.
The fire started at about 1:30 a.m. Tuesday at a home on the 200 block of South Yale Avenue.
The residents told NBC4 that they were watching TV upstairs when they heard a pop and lost power. When they checked the basement, they saw flames and then exited the home.
A firefighter suffered minor injuries when he fell through the floor inside the home.
The residents are now trying to find their two cats, Franklin and Clarence.
Investigators say that the fire may have been an electrical fire that started in the basement.
The Red Cross was called to help the two men who lived in the home.
