DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) - Dayton firefighters had a tough time making sure everyone was out of a home when flames tore through it Saturday afternoon.
The fire broke out in the 1000 block of Leland Avenue after 11 a.m.
Fire officials said the blaze started in the attic.
Crews were originally told no one was home, but when they arrived they noticed a car in the driveway. They conducted searches throughout the home to make sure no one was inside.
"The house is really cluttered, so we're going to have to dig through things and see what we can find," said District Chief Barry Baldwin of the Dayton Fire Department.
After they determined no one was inside, firefighters were able to contain the blaze, but the house is considered a total loss.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
