(WMC-TV) – Four people are without a home after a Monday night fire.

Memphis firefighters say they responded to the call in the 900 block of Birch Street just after 11 p.m. on Monday.

It took firefighters a little more than 20 minutes to knock the flames down.

There were no injuries and total damages are estimated to be around $20,000.

Faulty wiring in the carport was determined to be the cause of the fire.

The American Red Cross provided assistance to the four adults displaced by this fire.
