A discarded cigarette caused a house fire early Saturday morning, said Joe Vitale, Kansas City Fire Department public information officer.
Firefighters responded to a call at 3:29 a.m. to a two-story, occupied house in the 4200 block of East Seventh Street.
There were no injuries, Vitale said. Estimated damages were $20,000 to the structure and $10,000 to contents.
