A fire heavily damaged a home in Moline, Ill. late Tuesday night.

It broke out around 10:00 p.m. in the 4700 block of 39th street.

Fire crews responded to a call of a mattress fire, but when they arrived, there were flames shooting out of three sides of the house.

The family of four was already out of the house and are okay.

Moline fire department battalion chief, Mike Maynard says there are no hydrants in the area, because it's under county jurisdiction.

He says crews had to use water lines from trucks.

"We were able to pull lines immediately when we got here. The trucks have around 500 gallons of water for initial knock down and actually we used two trucks full of water and then everything was pretty much knocked down and we were able to supply those trucks with water from other trucks just to kind of mop things up."

Three engines from Moline Fire responded, as well as one from East Moline.

The Red Cross is helping the family relocate.
