Preston — Four people and two dogs were displaced by a fire at a Tanglewood Drive residence Friday morning.

Preston fire Chief Thomas Casey said there were no injuries in the fire, which was contained to one bedroom and under control in about 10 minutes. There was heavy damage to the bedroom and moderate smoke damage throughout the house, he said.

The American Red Cross said it is assisting the residents.

The call came in about 10:13 a.m., according to Casey. Preston fire and emergency services responded, along with mutual aid from Norwich Fire Department's Engine 2, the Mohegan Tribal Fire Department Firefighter Assist and Search Team and Mashantucket Pequot Fire Department, he said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
