Investigators say arson may be the cause of an early-morning Christmas Day fire in Pawtucket  that displaced 10 residents.

The Providence Journal reports that the fire broke out at a three-story home on Benefit Street late Wednesday night. Officials say they believe the fire started on mattresses that were in front of the multi-family home.

No one was injured. The residents are now staying at an inn thanks to the home's owner.
