Two families have to find somewhere else to live after fire swept through a house in Moline.

The fire broke out around 10:30 Friday morning on the first floor of an older house, divided into two apartments, in the 1800 block of Avenue of the Cities.

No one was home in the first floor apartment, but the fire inspector says two adults and a baby were in the upstairs apartment when the fire began. They were able to get out safely and the fire was quickly put out. Now, fire officials are looking for the cause.

"The fire started on the first floor. We know that it worked its way to the second floor to some degree are doing some work in there to figure out how much fire spread there in the building," said

Moline Fire Inspector Mick Dochterman.

No one was hurt but the house was damaged and considered unlivable. The American Red Cross of the Quad Cities is helping both families with emergency needs.
