A fire in Hempfield was put out quickly Christmas morning but caused heavy smoke damage.

At 10:37 a.m. Tuesday, firefighters received a call about the blaze, which started in a bedroom at 146 Eden Hollow Lane, said Hyde Park fire Chief John Howell.

A couple and their three children were able to get out of the house with no injuries, he said.

“We got it contained to just one bedroom,” Howell said. “They all got out fine, nobody was hurt.”

Within about a half-hour, the seven responding fire companies were able to put out the fire, he said.

Because of the smoke damage, family members were planning to stay in another home they own nearby, the fire chief said.

The cause of the blaze is still under investigation, Howell said.
