An attic fire in Coalinga on Wednesday afternoon caused $15,000 worth of damage, but no one was injured, the fire department said.

A family of four, including two children, discovered the fire in the attic of their home on the 200 block of West Roosevelt Street about 4:20 p.m. The family quickly got out of the house before calling the fire department.

Smoke was coming out of the attic vents when firefighters arrived, but the fire was stopped before it damaged the contents of the house, the fire department said.

The estimate of the contents saved was $75,000.
