A family in Spokane’s East Central neighborhood was displaced Sunday morning after a fire tore through their home.

Spokane firefighters were called to the home, 2320 E. 4th Ave., at about 4:30 a.m. where they saw smoke coming from the rear of the structure and fire in the attic, firefighters said in a news release.

They searched the home but found nobody inside. The fire was quickly extinguished, but not before it caused damage to the attic and living space, the news release states.

The family was assisted by the American Red Cross in finding a temporary shelter.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
