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.

It was another cool, though overall pleasant day across the Tri-State - after only seeing temperatures dive as low as 22° early this morning, peak temperatures ended up climbing a few degrees higher than Thursday's; that being said, Evansville’s high temperature of 27° Was still 15° below average for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, temperatures will gradually fall for 23° around dinner time back down to 19° by10 PM. A weak northerly wind flow most of the night paired with our crystal clear skies will cause temperatures to of fall back down into the mid to low teens once again - Evansville's anticipated low temperature of 12° will mark or coolest since the morning of January 7th.
