MILWAUKEE – Fire balls and thick black smoke shot out of a home in South Milwaukee Tuesday evening.

Multiple fire crews were called to the house near 8th and Marquette Avenue just after 7:30 p.m.

Firefighters were able to get the fire under control in a matter of hours, but crews stayed on scene to monitor hot spots.

FOX 6 in Milwaukee says it was told there were no injuries.

The American Red Cross says it is assisting two adults and three children who were displaced by the fire.
