Crews contained it to the room it started in and extinguished it by 9:22 a.m., she said.
The cat was found dead in the unit.
Investigators determined it was an electrical fire and estimated the damage at $50,000 to building and $30,000 to the contents. The complex's buildings are valued together for tax purposes at $4.1 million.
American Red Cross officials are helping the residents with temporary housing.
