No one was injured in a fire that displaced a Racine family that lived at 1212 Highland  Avenue Monday morning.

Homeowners Phillip Turner and Mia Curry, and their seven children were not at home when the blaze started in a bedroom at 10:48 a.m. A cat was inside the home, but was not injured, according to a press release by the Racine Fire Department.

Firefighters were able to quickly put the fire out. The cause is still under investigation. The damage is estimated at $50,000.

The American Red Cross is helping the family by giving them temporary shelter.
