A family of six is getting help from the Red Cross after they were forced out of their home early Sunday morning.
A small fire broke out at the home on Sloan Drive, that's off Tuckaseegee Road in West Charlotte.
Fire investigators tell us it started in the attic around the water heater. Fortunately, the homeowner was able to catch the fire and alert authorities before it spread.
It took firefighters about 5 minutes to put it out and there were no injuries.
