WESTERN HILLS, OH (FOX19) -

Three adults have been displaced after a one-alarm house fire.

Fire crews were called to 3235 Brater Avenue around 11:30 p.m. on Thursday. Upon arrival, they reported heavy smoke coming from the roof of the building.

Due to the location and accessibility of the building, two additional crews were called in to help. It took firefighters around 30 minutes to extinguish the flames, which were confined to the attic.

All occupants were able to escape the home safely and no injuries have been reported.

The American Red Cross was notified and is assisting the three displaced adults.

Fire officials have determined the cause to be an electrical issue.
