A fire that displaced seven people from their Tacoma home Monday was caused by an electrical wire shortage in the attic, according to the Fire Department.
Firefighters responded to the blaze in the 3500 block of South Sheridan Avenue about 3:30 p.m. and found smoke coming from both sides of the 1,500-square-foot home.
Crews extinguished the flames and ventilated the roof.
The fire caused about $23,000 in damage. Three adults and four children home at the time were not injured.
