Santa Barbara County firefighters responded to a structure fire in the 5700 block of Gato Ave in Goleta.

At 10:52 a.m. Monday, crews arrived at the scene of a fire inside a one story residence.

It took crews approximately ten minutes to knock the fire down and check for extension in the attic. 

The home is occupied by a family of five and none were home at the time of the fire. Tragically, the family cat perished in the fire.

The County Fire Department reports the home also sustained smoke damage throughout. The cause is under investigation.
