A house fire Monday afternoon at 2629 Rockaway Place off Leestown Road displaced a family but no injuries were reported, said the Lexington fire department.

He said the attic also was heavily damaged.

The fire was contained in about 15 minutes, he added.

Cause of the fire was not immediately known, said Whittaker.
