Posted: Updated:

A Monroe house fire left a family displaced Sunday.

The fire started around 12 p.m. on Hattertown Road, officials say.

They say it quickly spread to three floors.

Trumbull and Easton fire departments were also called to the scene.

Officials are warning residents that there are increased house fires at this time of the year.

"People are cooking more than usual around the holidays," says Deputy Chief Kevin Catalano, of the Monroe Fire Department. "They using candles, decorating extension cords."

Firefighters say Santa had to come along to the fire because when the call came in they were delivering gifts to families in need.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
