The family is staying in a hotel for now, local residents are dropping off clothes, and a community bake sale to raise money is planned on Monday, he said.

Reported about 6:45 p.m., the fire was under control in about an hour, he said. The cause is not known.

About a dozen firefighters were at the scene. A house next door appeared to have suffered some heat damage on one side, Unger said.
