A fire overnight forced a family of three adults and two children to leave their home in Mansfield.

The blaze broke-out at 2 a.m. Monday at 262 1/2 Parkway Drive, leaving the house too damaged to live in, because the water, electric, and gas were turned off and there's a large hole in an exterior wall.

The Richland County Chapter of the American Red Cross is providing the family with temporary food, clothing, and shelter while they look for a new place to live.

Mansfield firefighters determined the fire started on an exterior window sill, and may have been caused by a carelessly discarded cigarette. No one was hurt.
