A fire forced a Cumberland County family from their home Saturday afternoon.

Crews were called to the 200 block of Saint James Court around 2 p.m. according to Emergency Dispatch Services.

The fire started in the rear of the home, according to officials.

Hampden Township Volunteer Fire Department was training locally which helped get crews to the scene quickly.

Approximately 60 firefighters were on the scene, together they were able to get the fire under control in about an hour.

No injuries were reported and the family is staying with relatives.

The community has come together to support the family, creating a GoFundMe campaign, with a goal of $20,000. As of Thursday evening the campaign was just over $15,000.
