Multiple Amherst fire crews responded to reports of smoke and flames seen coming from a home on Merrick Circle Friday night.
Fire officials tell CBS 3 that the fire appears to have started in the kitchen.
No one was home at the time of the fire, but a cat did die.
Fire officials are still investigating what sparked the blaze.
CBS 3 Springfield has on-scene and will have more details as they become available.
