TIVERTON, R.I. (WPRI) — A family of three was displaced Friday morning after their Tiverton home was damaged by fire.

Town firefighters responded to Hayden Avenue just after 9 a.m. to find the structure was fully involved.

It took firefighters about an hour to get the fire under control.

One person inside was able to get out safely, but several pets were killed. The Red Cross is assisting one adult and two children with emergency housing and basic living needs.

The inside of the home was heavily damaged.

Investigators are looking into what caused the fire.
