Four people were hospitalized following a fire early Sunday morning.

The fire broke out at a home in the 1500 block of 15th Street around 2 a.m. due to a small heater being placed too close to a bed.

The two families living in the home have been given money for food and clothing, and will be able to stay in a local hotel for three nights thanks to the American Red Cross South Plains Regional Chapter.

Those sent to the hospital were two children and two adults, out of eight people in the home. They have all been released.
