A mother and her three children were displaced Monday morning after a fire ripped through their Kent apartment.

The fire was reported just before 9 a.m. in a first-floor unit at the complex in the 1600 block of W. Smith Street. Nobody was home at the time.

Firefighters evacuated all residents of the two-story building and kept the flames from spreading beyond the one apartment.

A cause has not been determined.
