Fire displaced a family of four Friday morning just outside of Vinton but caused no reported injuries, officials said.
Crews were called to the 600 block of Landfair Drive around 4 a.m. and found a small fire in and around a fuse box, said Roanoke County Fire and Rescue spokeswoman Jennifer Conley Sexton.
The flames were under control within 30 minutes, she said.
Red Cross spokeswoman Amy Whittaker said the organization is assisting two adults and two children who were displaced with financial assistance for meals and lodging.
Investigators are working to determine the fire's cause.
