FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- A family is safe after a fire damaged their home on Sunday.

The fire happened at 1731 Andrew Street.

The fire was discovered outside the two story home and extended to the attic.

When the Fort Wayne fire department arrived, they found heavy smoke and fire.

No one was inside at the time, and the cause is under investigation.

"We heard the fire trucks first. My son's a big fan of fire trucks so we came outside to see what was going on. The whole back of the house was engulfed in flames," neighbor Amy Smith said.

She said the fire department had it under control within minutes.
