Officials believe the fire started outside the home, traveled through the vents, and into the attic.
Most of the clothing and furniture in the attic was destroyed, but the fire was under control before spreading further into the home.
There were a few family members inside, but they were able to get out without any injury.
It's still unclear how the fire was started, but officials don't believe anything was suspicious. Stay with 5 News for the latest.
Reports indicate that crews are trying to put out a fire on Homewood Avenue in Fairmont.
When 5 News called Marion 911 dispatchers they confirmed that crews were called to the scene of a working fire at about 4:00 Tuesday afternoon.
We have a reporter on the way to the scene and will update you as soon as more information is made available.
