A small fire at a west Omaha home displaced a family on New Year's Day.
A woman and her two children were at the house, 3432 Augusta Ave., when a fire started in a bedroom around 8:30 p.m.
There was no smoke or flames when crews arrived at the house, which is near 126th and A Streets, and the blaze was quickly put out, Omaha Fire Battalion Chief Kathy Bossman said.
Fire damage was confined to the bedroom, but other areas of the house were damaged by smoke, Bossman said. The cause has not been determined.
The American Red Cross is helping the family members until they are able to move back in.
Earlier Wednesday, a mattress fire did minimal damage to a vacant home at 4131 Erskine St.
Investigators think it could have been set by children playing with fire — witnesses saw a couple of kids running from the area shortly before the fire was discovered, said William Bernard, a Fire Department spokesman.
