CINCINNATI -- Five people are displaced after their Evanston home caught fire Tuesday morning, according to the Cincinnati Fire Department.

The house, located at 3324 Trimble Avenue, caught fire before 6:26 a.m. Everyone inside was able to get out before firefighters arrived. First responders transported one person to a hospital because they were having trouble breathing.

The fire went up to the third floor of the home, and officials estimate the fire caused $50,000 in damage.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials believe the fire was caused by a candle.

The American Red Cross is helping the people who are displaced.
