Ten people and a family dog were displaced following a fire in a home near Lake Worth Wednesday morning.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews arrived on scene to the house inside the Hypoluxo West development to see heavy smoke and a fire in the garage area of the house around 6:25 a.m.

They were able to prevent the fire from spreading to other areas in the house, but the fire did travel into the attic.

Firefighters ended up cutting a hole in the roof to stop any further spread.

No injuries were reported and the Red Cross is assisting those who were displaced.

They are currently investigating the cause of the fire.
