GRAND FORKS, North Dakota — A fire in Grand Forks has left four families without a home and displaced a fifth family.

The blaze broke out about 3:30 p.m. Sunday in a home that had been divided into several rental units. Investigators believe the fire began in the basement and spread through the entire home, which was destroyed. The cause wasn't immediately determined.

The Fire Department says all of the occupants got out safely. The Red Cross put them up in a hotel, along with the family from a neighboring home that filled with smoke.
