A kitchen fire caused extensive damage to a North Huntingdon home on Monday afternoon.

Circleville volunteer firefighters said heavy smoke was coming from the Samantha Drive home when they arrived shortly after 1 p.m.

Officials said the homeowner, whom they did not identify, left the house about 15 minutes before the fire was discovered.

The cause of the blaze remains under investigation, officials said.

A cat that was rescued from the home was treated by rescue workers and later taken to a local veterinary clinic for treatment, according to firefighters
