HILO, Hawaii -

Fire inspectors are looking into the cause of a blaze that damaged a Hilo home Thursday night.

When firefighters arrived, they found flames burning the porch area of the two-story home.

The flames had spread to the bedroom upstairs through a window and into a main living area downstairs.

All of the residents in the home were able to escape the fire safely.
