Faulty electrical wiring started a fire at a Tacoma home this morning, causing $25,000 in damages.

Firefighters responded to the house in the 6200 block of South Gove Street about 3:30 a.m. and found flames had spread up a kitchen wall and into the attic and roof. Crews doused the blaze and ventilated the attic space.

The Red Cross is relocating the homeowner. No injuries were reported.
