A family was displaced after a house fire Friday morning in west suburban Naperville.

Firefighters were called at 8:05 a.m. to a fire in the single-family home in the 1400 block of Briarwood Drive, according to a statement from Naperville police. They arrived to find smoke coming from the front of the house, and found the fire in the basement.

The fire was extinguished within 10 minutes, according to the Naperville Fire Department. All of the residents managed to get out safely before firefighters arrived.

No injuries were reported, officials said, but fire and smoke damage rendered the house uninhabitable, and the residents were staying with a family member.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation by the Naperville Fire Investigation Team.
