Pet missing after Bettendorf fire


No one was home at the time of a fire in the 2100 block of Bellevue Avenue on Thursday, but a pet is still missing.

Residents left the home about 20 minutes before the fire broke out around Noon.

Firefighters are not sure where the fire started, but most of the damage was contained to the front bedroom.

The house — a rental — is uninhabitable at this time, but no cause or estimate on damage is available at this time.

Bettendorf, riverdale and Rock Island Arsenal fire departments responded to the blaze. An investigation is ongoing.
