(WFRV) GREEN BAY, Wis. - A Thanksgiving morning fire has displaced five people in Green Bay, according to firefighters. 

The Green Bay Metro Fire Department was called to a basement fire at a home on the 900 block of Heyrman Street around 6:45 Thursday morning. 

When firefighters first arrived they found heavy smoke coming from all sides and fire venting out a rear basement window. Crews made a quick interior attack knocking down the majority of the fire within minutes, according to The Green Bay Metro Fire Department.
