Lincoln Fire and Rescue responded to a duplex fire near 14th and A. It happened late this afternoon.
Residents smelled smoke in the duplex, went downstairs and found a small fire in a coal chute.
Everyone inside the building got out safely. The Red Cross is helping two families find a place to stay tonight.
Investigators think a discarded cigarette in the coal chute started the fire. The damage is estimated to be around $5,000.
