PIERRE (AP) - A house fire in Pierre has injured a man and killed two cats.

Deputy Fire Chief Ian Paul tells KCCR radio that the late Wednesday fire started near a chair on the main level of the three-level home. The cause hasn't been determined but Paul says the blaze appears to be accidental.

The man suffered what is believed to be burns and smoke inhalation. His name and condition were not immediately released.

Damage to the house is estimated at about $50,000.
