MIAMI (WSVN) -- Officials are investigating a house fire that displaced three adults Wednesday morning.

The fire broke out just before 11 a.m. at Northwest 55th Street and 17th Avenue.

According to the homeowner, she had lit candles in her bedroom and stepped out of the room to do laundry. A few minutes later she noticed smoke coming out of the room and tried to extinguish the fire with a garden hose.

Neighbors also noticed the fire and called 911. Miami Fire Rescue responded and put the flames out.

No one was hurt and the Red Cross is working to help the three displaced residents.

The exact cause of the fire is under investigation.
