The Caldwell Fire Department responded to a house fire at 13th and Blaine Streets in Caldwell early Thursday morning.

A Caldwell Fire Department dispatcher says crews and engines were called in from other areas as mutual aid, since the house is near other structures in the neighborhood.

Witnesses reported seeing flames shooting out the windows.

Drivers are asked to avoid the area if possible.

The dispatcher said those living in the house were able to get out safely.

No word yet on what caused the fire.
