(CINCINNATI) -- A one-alarm fire in the Pendleton neighborhood of Cincinnati has caused $40,000 in damage and displaced two occupants.
Just before 4 p.m. Monday, crews responded the two-story home on Walworth Ave. and found heavy smoke coming from the attic area.
Fire companies brought the fire under control within a half hour. There were 28 firefighters on the scene.
Two adults escaped the home prior to the firefighters' arrival. They were alerted to the fire by the smell of smoke from the rear of the structure. There were not smoke detectors in the building.
Investigators say the cause of the fire was improperly discarded charcoal placed in a garbage can in close proximity to the structure. The fire traveled up the exterior of the building and into the attic.
The Red Cross is assisting the two displaced occupants.
