A Friday morning fire on East Louisiana Street left nine Evansville residents displaced.

Evansville Fire Department crews were dispatched to the fire around 8:19 a.m. on Friday after the occupants of the home called 911. When crews arrived at 8:21 a.m., they could see smoke coming from the house. Crews were able to quickly manage the fire and it was considered fully extinguished by 8:57 a.m.

At the time of the fire, four adults were home but were able to escape on their own, with one adult receiving a minor burn to their arm. Those four adults in addition to five children ranging in ages from 2-years-old to 11-years-old were displaced as a result of the fire.

EFD says the fire started in the home's kitchen and determined its cause to be cooking related.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
