Two adults and two children were displaced from their home in La Quinta after their attic caught fire.
Fire crews responded at 8:26 a.m. Wednesday to a report of a residential structure fire in the 47000 block of Sumac Court, according to the Riverside County Fire Department.

By 10:26 a.m., fire officials said that the fire was contained and no injuries were reported, but two adults and two children were receiving assistance from the American Red Cross due to being displaced from the home.
