Wenatchee Police say a home was heavily damaged from a fire reported at 1:12am Sunday morning.

Officers say a power line going to the house at 215 Lewis Street caused a tree to catch fire, with the home catching fire from there.

Chelan PUD told KPQ that the cause of the fire has not been determined.

Sgt. Joe Eaton said officers arrived to see the house fully engulfed in flames. They were able to make entry into the garage area where a large group of people, including children, were rescued to safety.

A couple of people were taken to Central Washington Hospital for precautionary reasons.

Fire personnel were investigating the fire Sunday, Christmas Day.

The Red Cross was called in to find living space for the total of eight adults and kids who were left without shelter.
