No injuries were reported but one family is homeless after a fire in Aultman Saturday.

The call went out around 1:30 yesterday afternoon to the Seventh Avenue home of the Hoover family.  Aultman Fire Department was assited by Indiana, Blairsville and Homer City Fire departments in fighting the blaze. 

The father was home with his two kids when the fire started, but they were able to get out of the house without injury.  Fire Chief Mike Yount believed that the fire started in the bathroom, but the cause remains unknown at this time. State Police Fire Marshals have been called in to determine how the fire started. 

The home was completely destroyed by the fire, and there was minimal heat damage done to a neighboring house. 

The Hoovers are currently staying with relatives in town.
