Four people were left homeless Tuesday afternoon following a house fire in Westfield.
Officials said the fire started in a light fixture on the third floor of a five-story Meadow Street home just before 11 a.m.
The fire spread into the insulation in the ceiling.
Firefighters had to tear the ceiling down to put out the fire.
Fire officials estimate $6,000 in damage.
The Red Cross is assisting the family.
