THOUSAND PALMS, Calif. - Firefighters quickly contained a blaze that broke out in the attic of a Thousand Palms home Monday, which displaced the home's five residents.

The non-injury fire sparked just before 12:30 p.m. in a single-story home in the 31000 block of Arbol Real Avenue, said Jody Hagemann of the Riverside County Fire Department.
