CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - A fire destroyed a home in northwest Mecklenburg County Wednesday morning.

The fire broke out at a two-story home on Riverhaven Drive, right off the Catawba River. Firefighters saved a cat, and say the two people who lived at the home are OK.

Flames could be seen shooting from the second story of the home as firefighters worked to control the fire.

There's no word on a cause.
