House fire causes $10,000 in damage

A Roanoke home was damaged by fire early Tuesday, but no residents were hurt, officials said.
Firefighters were called to the 600 block of Elmcrest Street Northeast about 6:45 a.m. and found heavy smoke coming from a single-family house, said
Roanoke Fire-EMS spokeswoman Jennifer Faulkner. The person who was home at the time escaped without injury. Faulkner said that the fire started in a basement bedroom. Fire damage was contained to that room, but the rest of the house sustained significant smoke damage. Damage was estimated at $10,000.
No cause has been determined.
