Genoa Township firefighters are investigating the cause of a blaze at a Westerville home Sunday afternoon.

Smoke and flames were coming from the second floor when crews arrived to 79 Hampton Park West around 2:30 p.m.

A deputy fire chief on the scene says seven people were inside the home when the fire started and all managed to get out safely.

The fire spread so quickly, firefighters were forced to battle the flames from outside the home.

At this point, firefighters do not know where the fire started or how much damage it caused.

The Red Cross has been called out to assist the homeowners.
