Greenville fire investigators are trying to determine how a fire started that destroyed a home Monday morning.

The fire broke out at a two story home at 306 St. Andrews Drive.

Firefighters say the call came in at 10:32 a.m. and five minutes later the first units arrived to find flames shooting out of the roof.

The fire caused a large portion of the roof to collapse.

Four people lived in the home and the Red Cross is offering them assistance. No one was inside, and there have been no reports of any injuries. Firefighters tell us one family pet is unaccounted for.

Because of the high temperatures, firefighters were taking regular breaks and drinking plenty of water.
