A Henrico family is displaced Thursday morning after a kitchen fire causes significant damage inside the home.

Fire crews responded to the 1300 block of Vassar Road near Quioccasin Road at 9:30 a.m. When crews arrived, they saw smoke coming from the front door. Crews put out the fire in about 30 minutes.

An 81-year-old man was asleep in the home when the fire started. He was awoken by a fire alarm and was able to make it out safely. No one else was in the home at the time of the fire.

The five residents, including one child, are being assisted by the Red Cross.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
