SAN DIEGO (CNS/CBS 8) - Investigators believe a faulty space heater may have caused a fire that damaged a Clairemont duplex and killed a pet cat.

Firefighters were dispatched to the 4800 block of Clairemont Drive near Merrimac Avenue shortly before noon, according to the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department.

A pet cat died in the fire, but four other felines and three dogs were not hurt, fire officials said.

The American Red Cross was called in to assist the unit's three adult residents.

There was no immediate word on what sparked the blaze. Damage is estimated at $100,000.
