WARTBURG, Tenn. (WVLT) - A Morgan County family was forced out of their home on Wednesday by a fire.

The Wartburg Fire Department captain tells Local 8 News that when the homeowner arrived at the house, he saw smoke coming out of the roof, and couldn't even get inside the home.

Crews arrived on scene just after 4:00 to the house on Bob Arms Circle.

There are no reports of flames, but there is a lot of smoke and water damage to the house.

No one was injured in the fire, but investigators are still looking what caused it.
