Three adults and four children were forced out of their lower West Side home by a Monday evening fire that caused an estimated $65,000 damage, Buffalo fire officials reported.

Firefighters responded to a 5:20 p.m. alarm at 357 Hudson St., two blocks south of Symphony Circle. The blaze, which started on the second floor, extended into the attic of the 2½-story house.

The cause remains under investigation. The Red Cross was called to assist the seven people driven from their home.
