URBANA -- Six people are homeless after a fire. It happened early Thursday morning in the 1200-block of North Eastern Avenue.

Champaign County Sheriff's deputies say they got a call a little after 12:30 am. A man living there told them he heard a "popping" noise and could smell smoke.

When crews arrived, they found fire in the attic. Deputies say it doesn't seem suspicious. No one was hurt and a damage estimate is not yet available.

People living there were just renting rooms. The Red Cross is helping them find places to live for now.
