BINGHAMTON, N.Y. -

 The Red Cross is assisting a Binghamton family after a fire broke out at their home on Saturday evening.

Bing. Deputy Chief Stephen Faughnan says the call came in around 4:30 p.m. The BFD responded to 28 Cedar Street, Apartment 2, where the Binghamton Police were already evacuating people out of the building. 

Four children were home at the time of the incident, while both parents were both at work.

"There was a light showing of smoke from the second floor and once we got up there we found a fire in a bedroom on the second floor," said Faughnan.

Part of Cedar Street was blocked off with Police tape and Fire Officials were able to put the fire out around 5:00 p.m.

Officials say "the bedroom was pretty well burnt up," and add that the family will not be able to stay in the residence on Saturday. 

Everyone got out of the apartment safely and no injuries were reported. 

The cause of the fire is still unknown and Officials are still investigating.
