NEWPORT, R.I. (WPRI) — A fire at a multi-family home in Newport is under investigation.

Flames broke out just before 7:00 p.m. Wednesday on Kay Street.

Officials say people were inside the home but they were all able to make it out safely.

The fire chief says crews were able to knock the fire down quickly.  However, the flames were near electrical equipment, so fire crews had to wait for national grid to shut down the electricity.

Officials are still looking into the cause of the fire.
