FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Authorities are looking for the cause of a fire that displaced ten people in Southwest Fresno.

The fire broke out before 7 a.m. Tuesday on Lily Street near Reverend Chester Riggins Avenue. Firefighters say when they arrived they could see flames shooting through the roof of the home. Luckily, the four adults and six children inside the home were able to get out without being injured.

"The one thing we do want to stress is there were no working smoke detectors in the house. So one of the things is they were awakened by a popping sound, which is not a good way to be awakened" said Cpt. Tim Fulmer, Fresno Fire Department.

One firefighter was injured while fighting the fire, but he will survive. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Meanwhile, the Red Cross was called in to help the family members find a new place to stay. null
