Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON, NV (FOX5) -

Four people are without a home after a fire tore through their Henderson home on Wednesday morning.

The Henderson Fire Department responded to the fire on Ocean Avenue just before 10:30 a.m.

Firefighters found heavy smoke and flames coming from the single-story residence, and it was determined the fire was coming from the attic.

When crews were unable to stop the progression of the attic fire, they were ordered out of the house and firefighters battled the blaze from the outside.

No one was injured the fire, but four adults were displaced. They are being assisted by the American Red Cross and extended family.

Damage to the home is estimated at $100,000. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
