8 people are displaced after a fire Sunday afternoon.

At approximately 4:30, Providence Fire responded to the 3-story wood-frame home on Arch St., where a fire had reportedly started outside and worked its way up the side of the home into the 3rd floor apartment.

Luckily, everyone in the home self-evacuated, but now those 8 people have been displaced.

The American Red Cross is helping those 4 children and 4 adults.

Fire officials are still investigating the cause of the fire, and are looking into reports of children outside at the time the fire began.
