Posted: Updated:

SALEM, Ohio - A family was displaced Christmas night after a fire destroyed their West Pershing Avenue home.

Fire crews say the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Upon arrival, crews found heavy fire on the main floor which spread throughout the home.

Thankfully crews say no one was home at the time.

"They responded out here with the idea that people were trapped as the call came in. After arriving on scene they found out there was no one inside the building," said Captain Jeff Olinger, Salem Fire Department.

The State Fire Marshall's Office is being called and will assist with the investigation.
