DECATUR, Ga. -- Ten members of a family escaped a fire that started at about 2 a.m. at their home on Bixler Circle near Decatur.

DeKalb firefighters arrived in time to knock down the flames before they spread beyond one room inside.

Five adults and five children were home at the time.

No one was hurt, but one of the adults was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

"The Red Cross will assist them with finding a place to stay this morning but they won't be able to stay here anymore tonight," said DeKalb Fire Captain Paul Daniel.

DeKalb fire investigators are looking into the cause of the fire.
