LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A carport fire caused $40,000 worth of damage Tuesday morning. 

Firefighters responded to the incident at 12:15 a.m. in the 2000 block of South 15th Street, near St. Louis Avenue and Maryland Parkway. 

Arriving firefighters found a carport on fire. They were able to bring it under control in less than five minutes. Most of the fire was under the carport but it did extend into a bedroom of the house that was against the carport. 

A number of people were displaced in the fire and the family requested assistance, the department said. There were no reported injuries. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
