Firefighters in Springfield were called to an apartment fire at 286 Allen Park Rd. Wednesday morning.
Investigators said they are trying to determine what caused the blaze in an upstairs bedroom. A woman and her three children live there, but nobody was home at the time of the fire.
The American Red Cross is assisting the family while they temporarily find another place to live.
The fire did not spread into neighboring apartments, but it did cause around $25,000 in damage.
