GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A family is without a home Saturday morning after flames caused extensive damage.

The fire started at around 1:30 a.m. in the back of a house on Griggs Street SE in Grand Rapids.

Officials on scene told 24 Hour News 8 that a family of six lived at the home but everyone made it out safely.

Crews are not sure what sparked the fire and do not suspect fireworks are to blame.

The Red Cross is now assisting the family.
