A Dauphin County family is out of their home after a late night fire.

Flames broke out just before 11:30 p.m. in the 600 block of Second Street in Highspire on Thursday.

We got to the scene a short time later and could still see smoke coming from the house.

The Chief says most of the fire was in the back of the home and they got it out quickly, but they did have one hurdle.

"We had some problems with the water being cold and all that but other than that, that was it," says Chief Chris Gillott of the Highspire Fire Department.

One firefighter did suffer a minor knee injury while battling the fire.

We're told seven people were at home at the time of the blaze but they all got out safely. The home suffered extensive damage. Four adults and three children were displaced.

There's no word on a cause and the Fire Marshal is investigating. Officials say they don't believe the fire is suspicious.
