Officials say three people and a dog have been displaced after a fire burned through the attic of their home Sunday.

Firefighters responded to a home near 28th Street and Sweetwater Road around 5 p.m. Investigators said the fire started on the patio of the house and quickly spread to the attic.

Those home at the time tried to put the fire out themselves but had to stop due to heavy smoke.

Everyone was able to escape without injury, according to a Phoenix Fire Department spokeswoman.

Officials said the cause was still under investigation.

No further information was immediately available.
