Fire severely damaged a northeast Roanoke home early Thursday, the fire department said.

Flames and smoke were coming from the house on Ridgerun Drive Northeast when firefighters arrived shortly after 2:40 a.m., according to a post on the Facebook page of Roanoke Fire EMS. More help was called, as the fire had spread next door, the post said.

All occupants evacuated without injury, the post said.

Five people in two homes were displaced, the post said.

Crews did not immediately release a cause of the incident.
