It happened on the Boston Road Monday afternoon. The homeowner stepped out for a short while and returned to a home full of smoke around 4 p.m.
Several crews responded, finding the fire started somewhere in the kitchen, although the exact cause is still unknown.
Officials said the fire spread to the roof and took a long time to get under control. The home is a total loss, but no one was hurt.
The family living there is displaced for the time being.
