A Charlottesville family has been temporarily relocated after a fire broke out in their home early Thursday morning.
The fire broke out at around 3:20 in a kitchen on Druid Avenue. No one was hurt, and The Red Cross is assisting the family of three.
Firefighters were able to quickly contain the flames, which were caused by a malfunction of a kitchen appliance.
"Units discovered smoke showing from the residence. Further investigation did show there was a fire in the residence," said Battalion Chief Richard Jones. "Units quickly got inside, began a primary and secondary search, established that no one was inside the residence, began attacking the fire and quickly got a kitchen fire under control."
With high temperatures and humidity outside crews were on hand to give firefighters wellness checks so they didn't overheat.
