ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Two people are recovering from smoke inhalation after a west Anchorage fire.

KTUU-TV (http://bit.ly/1tWhjPq) reports the fire started just before 11 a.m. Sunday in the living room of a condominium off International Airport Road. The home was one of 20 in the condominium complex.

A home oxygen unit caused the fire to grow and fire department Capt. Barry Clark says the fire got big fast.

One unit was destroyed and other had smoke damage.

The two injured people were taken to a hospital.

The fire killed two cats.

The cause has not been determined.
