RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — Two children and three adults were displaced from their Raleigh home after a fire broke out Saturday morning, officials said.

The incident was reported just before 7:15 a.m. at a home in the 600 block of Rawls Drive, according to Raleigh Battalion Chief Richard Siebel.

When fire crews arrived the family was already out of the home.

Forty firefighters were at the scene and it took about 20 minutes to get the fire under control, Siebel said.

Fire and water caused damage to 75 percent of the house.

The cause of the fire was accidental, but Siebel did not provide any other information.

The Red Cross was called in to help the family find housing.
