A family of five and their dog are looking for a new place to live after their apartment caught fire Friday evening.

Crews say the fire was contained to one unit near Western Avenue and Litchfield Road.

The living room, kitchen and back patio were damaged in the blaze.

Crews say no one was home when the fire broke out.

The cause is still under investigation, but officials say it may have been accidental.

Red Cross volunteers are helping the family with clothing, food and shelter.
