WESTPORT, CT (WFSB) -

Firefighters in Westport said they responded to a kitchen fire at a multi-family home late Wednesday night.

They said they were called to Post Road East around 10:30 p.m.

By the time they arrived, everyone inside the home was safely outside.

Firefighters said a sprinkler in the kitchen area helped to contain the fire to that location.

That part of the home was damaged by smoke and water.

No injuries were reported.

Firefighters said the department's fire marshal's office is looking into the cause of the fire.

They also said the Westport Housing Authority and the American Red Cross provided temporary help to the families who were forced out by the flames.
