WATERLOO (KWWL) -

A fire started in the basement of 917 West 1st Street around 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Firefighters were able to contain the fire to the basement of the home.

Four people were home at the time of the fire. They were all able to get out unharmed.

The cause of the fire is unknown.  Witnesses say, the man in the basement at the time the fire started, took off on a bike not long after getting out of the house.

The six residence of the house will be displaced because of issues to the electric resulting from the fire, as well as water and smoke damage.
