A Lubbock family is staying in a hotel Tuesday after a fire damaged their home.
Around 8:00 p.m., a neighbor saw fire coming from a residence on Duke St. near North Avenue U.
The family was not home at the time and officials say the neighbor sprung into action and put out the fire before crews arrived on the scene.
Firefighters are still investigating the cause but say the fire was confined to only one room. Red cross is assisting the family.
