MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Fire investigators are trying to figure out what caused an overnight house fire in Whitehaven.

The fire broke out just before 2 a.m. Thursday in the 4500 block of Mickey Drive, which is just a few blocks northwest of Millbranch Rd. and Shelby Drive.

Firefighters say several family members were home when the fire started.

They were all able to get out safely.

It took firefighters about 15 minutes to put out the flames.

Most of the fire damage was contained to the attic area.
