Two Southwest Fresno residents are looking for a new place to stay after a fire caused heavy damage to their home.

The flames broke out shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday inside a home on Garrett near Thorne. Fire officials say the fire started in the attic. One of the residents says she noticed the flames, woke up her grandfather, and they both made it out safely.

It's unclear what caused the fire but authorities say electrical problems may be to blame.
