OVERLAND PARK, Kan. —The Overland Park Fire Department said a family of seven has been displaced after a fire broke out in a south Overland Park home Monday morning. 

Just before 4 a.m. crews from the Overland Park, Olathe and Leawood Fire Departments were called to the 1400 block of Hayes Street for a house fire. 

The first crews on scene reported large amounts of smoke and fire coming out of the back of the two story home. Five people were inside the home at the time of the fire. Two adults, three children and two dogs were able to escape without injury. 

Fire investigators believe the incident may have been caused by a fire pit used on a wooden deck behind the home. Investigators believe the fire pit may not have been extinguished completely after being used the night before, igniting the deck and back of the home.

It took fire crews roughly two hours to put out the blaze. Firefighters say there is significant fire and water damage throughout the home.
