Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW-TV) A Buffalo family escaped an early morning house fire Saturday.

Flames started on the second floor of a home on Northampton Street and also jumped to the house next door.

12 people, including eight children were displaced by the fire.

One of the residents and a neighbor tells Eyewitness News the children may have been playing with matches or a lighter before the blaze broke out.

The fire caused more than $100,000 worth of damage but no one was hurt.

Officials have not released an official cause of the blaze.
