WACO (May 6, 2014) A fire broke out at a two-story home on the 2100 block of North 6th Street overnight, displacing a family of four.

The initial call came in just before 11:30 p.m. Monday

Waco Fire Department dispatched four engines, one ladder truck and a command center to the scene.

After nearly 30 minutes, firefighters brought the flames under control.

Firefighters tried to attack the flames from inside the house, but discovered the ceiling was beginning to cave in, so backed out.

The home's second floor was gutted and the first floor was heavily damaged by water, smoke and fire.

The cause is under investigation, but the fire appeared to have started on the second floor of the home.

The Red Cross was providing assistance to the displaced family.
