Firefighters are looking into an overnight fire that damaged a home.

Temple Fire and Rescue says the fire broke out in the 200 block of S. 20th Street in Temple just after 2 a.m. Tuesday morning. 

They say two adults and three kids were able to get out of the home safely and no one was hurt. 

Fire crews were able to get the flames under control around a half-hour later. The interior received smoke and heat damage and the front porch, attic and interior room was damaged by fire, but the dollar amount of damage is unknown. 

The American Red Cross is now helping the family.

There is no word yet on what caused the fire.
